[Mono-dev] Using Mono Assemblies under terms of LGPL

Hi All,

We are looking at using one of the assemblies from the Mono release
under the terms of the LGPL license in a commercial closed source
application. My understanding is that this is allowed as long as we do
not modify the compiled assembly in any way. The issue that we face is
that this assembly is not signed and we need to be able to place the
assembly in the GAC of Microsoft Windows systems. What is the
recommended way to handle this situation?

In particular we are interested in the GNU.Gettext.dll assembly. I
know this is technically not part of Mono, but Mono seems to be the
only source of a compiled version of this library and Gettext itself
is also LGPL.
