Re: Twinkle 0.8 encorporates iLBC code
Thanks for pointing this out. As more GPL projects distribute
the iLBC code I assumed the license was compatible with GPL.
When you look at www.ilbcfreeware.org, they themselves state
Kphone as implementing iLBC and Kphone is GPL.
I will have a closer look at the license and maybe contact
the people at ilbcfreeware (although that website doesn't seem
to be maintained anymore).
For the binary packages you can easily build a non-ilbc version
For the source, you'd have to strip away the ilbc directory.
