I don't know if this is the right place for my question, but here
I have a question about the licensing of mono. When writing a commercial
application to be used on both windows and mac, Mono is being used as a
tool to make this happen.  It is not possible to give out the source
code of the application, since it holds confidential information. The
application does not use Mono for compilation, only for runtime use.

What type of licensing would be needed here ? Also, it is possible (i
mean legally) to package and distirbute the mono framework into a
macpackage application, so that the user need not to install the mono
framework as a seperare item ?

Do you happen to know if anything changes if i would be to use cocoa# ?

Thanks in advance,


PS : I have tried to contact mono at novell.com and
mono-licensing at novell.com but both return "User Unknown"... What
happened ?
