This is not correct. Gambas itself is "open Source" because Benoit 
chooses so. As a condition of distrubiting it for use under the GPL he 
must also distribute the source code. Which he does. Iy is not his 
responsibility, nor does he, distribute external components that are 
used by gambas. If he did so then he would have to distribute them under 
the conditions of yhe licence concerned, If they were GPL AND HE CHANGED 
VERSIONS of that code under GPL.

Same as the above, if you chose to distribte your program LICENSED FOR 
USE UNDER THE GPL then you must meet the responsibilities thereof. 
Mainly, You must also make the source code available. If you choose to 
distrubute your program under some other agreement or licence then you 
are free to do so. Bt for example you cannt use the GPL and not include 
the source. Simple.

In addition some mentions were made on help from the forum  code from 
the forum and support for the development of Gambas. At the very lrast, 
no matter how you distribute your programs, I believe that you should 
acknowledge the time and contribution of Benoit, the Gambas developers 
and the general Gambas community. For example attached is a screenshot 
from one of our programs.

(typing this myself, so [leaseexcuse any mistakes.
