RE: MurgaLua's GPL implications

The requirement of the GPL that subsequent projects must also be released under the GPL applies only to those projects that directly use code from a GPL project. For example, if you were to make modifications to murgaLua and release it, it must remain under GPL. If you create a binary that statically links GPL libraries into itself or otherwise uses code from a GPL project, it must be GPL. But if you release a project that merely depends on another GPL project at runtime, it does not need to be GPL or even a GPL-compatible license.


That was my understanding, but I haven't had time to look into it ...
