1Linking jEdit statically or dynamically with other modules is making a 2combined work based on jEdit. Thus, the terms and conditions of the GNU 3General Public License cover the whole combination. 4 5As a special exception, the copyright holders of jEdit give you 6permission to link jEdit with independent modules that communicate with 7jEdit solely through the plugin interface, regardless of the license 8terms of these independent modules, and to copy and distribute the 9resulting combined work under terms of your choice, provided that 10every copy of the combined work is accompanied by a complete copy of 11the source code of jEdit (the version of jEdit used to produce the 12combined work), being distributed under the terms of the GNU General 13Public License plus this exception. An independent module is a module 14which is not derived from or based on jEdit. 15 16Note that people who make modified versions of jEdit are not obligated 17to grant this special exception for their modified versions; it is 18their choice whether to do so. The GNU General Public License gives 19permission to release a modified version without this exception; this 20exception also makes it possible to release a modified version which 21carries forward this exception.
