Ed, It maybe worth the effort to ask your questions to other embedded lists too, as my reading of all of these responses, makes me wonder, has not someone else already discovered and publish a list at some point in time. For example maybe at Linux From Scratch they advise on what softwares and codes to use, depending on what you are building up. Or maybe open embedded ? It just seems like this question should be solved and already documented somewhere? With dozens (hundreds) of commercial linux distros, surely they list licenses for codes they include therein? Maybe some research on what google has published on the licenses it encounters via the Android packages? Some of the BSD embedded projects might also be a good source of information. hth, James
