 GPL and sensitive data
Author: Roman Neuhauser 
Date:   23-12-01 03:30

while I use stunnel to access a POP3 server that requires SSL, I will be replacing it with something BSDL'd (or generally, non-GPL'd) soon. I don't feel comfortable about passing any sensitive data through a program whose license says that all output from the program is covered by the license unless blah blah. I wouldn't touch GnuPG with a ten feet pole for the very same reason. IANAL, but rather be safe than sorry.
