Hello,

I am creating a new package that I would like to submit to Bioconductor. It's essentially a C code, which is called by R (using Rcpp).

One of the C functions within my package, is the C code of the R optimize function (obtained from a C file of the folder: R-3.6.1\src\library\stats\src\optimize.c), but slightly modified.

At the top of the R-3.6.1\src\library\stats\src\optimize.c file it states that: "This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version."

I am just not entirely certain if my package is allowed to contain this slightly modified C code of the R function? And if yes, should I place the aforementioned phrase "This program is free software..." in comments above the specific function?

Thank you in advance, Elena

Please try to use only one forum for posting questions. It seems this moved to the developers forum which is the appropriate place to continue discussion. https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/bioc-devel/2020-March/016430.html
