Hello all,
I'm new to this mailing list and to the world of Open Source software.
I am currently writing a policy document for the company to inform
everyone of our obligations and rights in regard to Open Source software
(which we are increasingly using in our products in different ways).
I was just wondering if anyone has seen anything publically available
(or is willing to make something available)?

Obviously anyone can read the GPL and find out all the details but not
many people are going to bother to do that. I was thinking of a document
to more or less summarise the GPL and to lay out the specifics of how we
will make source available, statements to be made in manuals etc.
Obviously some details like that will differ in the details but
generally the same rules apply. 

BTW - I'm concerned mainly with issues in product development, where
open source is used in products that are sold by the company,
