Hi,

I'm working on a Python based suite for processing mass spectroscopy data. The software will be open source.
My goal is to glue good solutions together, one of them is the R based XCMS library.

The question is, if I am allowed to distribute the R.dll and the related libraries together with my software, or
if it is better to ask the user to install these himself.

Regards,

Uwe
