We have query on license terms and conditions.
We are planning to develop algorithms based on  cm4 and we are planning to
use RIOT.
Based on our initial study about this os, it doesn't support dynamic
loading of library, also we don't see make files which can generate dll
(.so). Also final executable is single binary.
Which means work/algorithms developed with RIOT will be considered as
derived work and will need to open to all free of cost.

But from RIOT website,  proprietary work need not be open.

So we need clarity on what precautions/steps we should follow to protect
our work which involves our IPs
Also static libraries which linked with RIOT to form final single
executable is considered as independent work and lgpl license terms are not
applicable to them.

Please clarify.
