Why is there binary content in the install script?

What is it? What does it do? How do I know that when it's binary? How can you use the GPL when you distribute a binary source?

Because that's the only way to keep the data inside the installer. The forum sources are available via CVS.

Thanks Ilya,


If someone else has this question.... the CVS instructions are in the README file

There is a complete src tree (about 9.3M) that you then compress into the local installer if you use CVS, or that is the binary 'attachment' if you just download the installer from the website.
