Confirm comment report request

diomus: Hi, thanks for seeking an answer from Castle. I didn't mean `dig dirt', just using your `weight' to get an answer. I sent a long, and hopefully helpful, email to Castle a little before the recent show pointing out their GPL obligations assuming just the Iyonix HAL was affected but never had a reply.

As to CTL conforming with 3b of the GPL, well their `announcement' doesn't cut it. It is the *code* as shipped, e.g. buried inside an Iyonix, that must be accompanied with the written offer for 3b. A one-off page on a website or Usenet post doesn't help the potential recipient of the code.

Your later post that Castle are including a notice is shipped Iyonix is good news. Can you get confirmation and the text?

PS. Is there some handy way of seeing when someone has posted onto a story where I've commented, i.e. a possible reply?
