Hi ,
I like to create a project , but after reading your terms I want to find if the sourceforge is the right place.
Questions -
- I want to post binaries of a proprietary utility that I did develop;
do I have to release the source code for it?
I do not want to release the source code, and if sourceforge requires this, I better do not start a project on the site;
- I want to post os images for ubuntu and android; the images use binaries from ubuntu and linaro; do I have to provide the source code for the images if they are built by other parties?
the source is available from other parties and and if sourceforge requires this, I better do not start a project on the site;
Thanks, Paul.

    Yes, you must provide Source code for any binaries you release on our site. The only exceptions are found in section 6, second to last paragraph of our Terms of use.

    Of your scenarios, the ubuntu/android images might qualify for (b), as long as you also release the source for the content you produce as well.

    Does that answer your question?

    Thanks,
    Chris Tsai, SourceForge.net Support
