This mailing list is for discussing development of WebKit. If you’re  
just using WebKit and not contributing, the right place to ask  
questions is webkit-help.

It’s likely people won’t give you legal advice. Here’s about all I  
feel comfortable saying. You need to adhere to the license of the code  
you’re using. WebKit code is covered by LGPL- and BSD-style licenses.  
One thing you will definitely need to do is to make the source code  
with your modifications available.
