: IANAL, but from the FSF GPL FAQ, you just have to make sure the source
: code is available. Since Blue Swirl is an Open BIOS maintainer, I think
: we can say with confidence that the openbios code will always be
: available. If that situation changed for some reason, we'd have to
: mirror their code.
This is covered by 'third party' agreements. Blue Swirl has agreed to
provide the source for the qemu project, as signified by his
committing the binaries to the qemu repo and since he's a cool guy.
If he decides to stop, then Anthony is right.
