Hello all,

I'm sorry to ask a question that has probably already been answered 
here before, but I couldn't find the answer in the FAQ or in quick 
search of the lists from 

Is gpgme using the LGPL (or the GPL)? The reason I ask is because I 
work for a company that sells commercial software, and we are looking 
at possibly using gnupg via gpgme to support OpenPGP in our product. 
Before I get very far on figuring out if we'll be able to use it 
though I wanted to find out if it was even possible/allowable to use 
it in a commercial context. It seems much more desirable a library 
than the commercially available ones I've been able to find not just 
because of its cost, but largely because being open source, there is 
a chance to look at the source and find (and report) bugs myself 
(rather than waiting months or years for a fix from the vendor).

Anyway, thanks for your time.

P.S. If you could CC me on the answer I would appreciate it. I've not 
yet subscribed to the various lists for gnupg.
