[vlc-devel] MobileVLCKit and the App Store

VLC was recently removed from the App Store because of licensing issues.
>From what I understand it was the VLC core devs who wanted it removed, not

I am left with some questions as we are currently developing a free, open
source TV application for iPad using MobileVLCKit.

WIll all further usage of MobileVLCKit in applications destined for the App
Store be in violation of the GPL in the core devs opinion?
Are the core devs demanding all apps using MobileVLCKit be removed from the
App Store, or is the "official" app being removed to prove a point regarding
the App Store?
Why are you maintaining MobileVLCKit in the core repo if it is unwanted?

I guess this move kills our project, and I suspect I already know the
answers to these questions.
But in any case I'd like to get a clear statement from the core devs
regarding MobileVLCKit and what its accepted use is.

Thanks in advance
