    about fsf?


    sir,

    When any new linux distribution come up, is it the responsibility of fsf(free software foundation) to verify whether that distribution is strickly follow the GPL license.
    If it is, how could i apply a new distro license for their verification?

    Thanks,
    Nazib

    Your distro *can* ship non-GPL packages. It's not forbidden to ship packages with other licenses: For example, Mozilla is open-source and not released under the GPL, and included in many distros.

    There's no such thing as a distro license verification. Just build it, and then distribute. :)
