i know you are not giving Sylpheed a hard time (:-))
i was joking..
your questions are ""légitimate"..most of us have been
quite shocked by the big spy scam nsa,i just use
a Freed_ora linux-libre operating system and avoid
using other systems that do not respect my freedom..
am no specialist as to gpl and other licenses but if
most gnu/linux os recommended by the gnu_org & fsf,so
i guess Sylpheed's respect our freedom.otherwise it would not
be in the libre_os..


Linux, as distributed by Linus Torvalds et al, contains non-Free 
<http://www.fsfla.org/ikiwiki/selibre/linux-libre/index.en.html>, i.e., 
software that does not respect your essential freedoms 
<http://www.fsfla.org/ikiwiki/about/what-is-free-software.en.html>, and 
it induces you to install additional non-Free Software that it doesn't 

GNU Linux-libre 
<http://www.fsfla.org/ikiwiki/selibre/linux-libre/index.en.html> is a 
project to maintain and publish 100% Free versions of Linux, removing 
the offending 
<http://www.fsfla.org/ikiwiki/selibre/linux-libre/index.en.html> portions.

Freed-ora is a sub-project that prepares and maintains 100% Free RPMs 
that track Fedora's non-Free kernels.
