Could you explain what is meant by the following text in the FAQ
The GPL does not necessarily require one to disclose their source code when modifying a GPL-covered work or using
GPL-covered code in a new work. This requirement arises only when the new project is "distributed" to a third parties. If the
resulting software is kept only for us by the modifier, no disclosure of source code is required.
In particular I would like to know what is meant by the term "distributed", and what the phrase "If the resulting software is kept only for us by the modifier" means.
I recommend that you read GPL for definition of "distribution" as we are not expert on legal languages, otherwise, you can talk to your company lawyers for it if you represent a company
