Description Salvo Tomaselli 2016-10-19 14:58:03 UTC
The manpage mentions the need to purchase a license to use mkbundle with proprietary software, however the website says that the new version of mono is released under MIT license, so it should be fine to use mkbundle with it?

If this is the case can you please update the manpage? Also making it point to a web page that explains what can and can't be done rather than an email address would be preferred.
