Let's say I use a GPL'd python module (e.g. something installed
in site-packages) in an application.
Let's also say I use py2exe to package and distribute said
Is what I'm distributing a "derived work" of the GPL'd python?
Or is py2exe's packaging of the module's .pyc file and my
application code's .pyc files a "mere aggregation" so that I
only have to provide source code for the GPL'ed module and not
for my application code?
IOW, do I have to GPL my application code and distribute source
code for it?
