Ok, I found the following in http://docs.joomla.org/Extensions_GPL_notices
So I guess that answers my question (kind of).
Not really. On http://docs.joomla.org/JED_Entries_License_Checklist
, under List C2.3 "Listed if...?" it has this:
2 Include non GPL Libraries? Only if the libraries are available under a GPL compatible license listed by the Free Software Foundation, as in LGPL
10 Bridges to a non gpl product
The non GPL product works independently from Joomla
Extension is GPL and created for Joomla
Clear statement that the extension requires a non GPL product to work
This is really a bit of a mess. One wonders if the people who wrote these documents even have English as their first language, so poorly are they written at times. Or perhaps this comes once again back to time limitations. That people don't have the time to think through and review what they are writing. I have to say, that one of the things that has disappointed me about Joomla generally is it's documentation, which, across the board, leaves a bit to be desired.
At any rate, it seems that the TOS is not the only documentation that could do with some updating.
