Australian Telco Telstra Complies with GPL

Late last year Australia’s biggest telco Telstra was sharply criticised for using GPL’d code in several of its new products – but not publicly distributing changes it made to the code when doing so. However, it looks as though the company has now come clean, publishing a source code CD of the files changed in its development effort and acknowledging the GPL and Lesser GPL. It’s good to see companies responding to the open source community this way and engaging – makes a change from the past!
