Hi David,

Nice to see some work on GemStone in Docker!

While I’m happy to discuss any specific concerns privately, I’ll say that you may redistribute GemStone subject to the following conditions:
you don’t include any keyfile other than the “Starter Edition” keyfile that ships with the distribution (don’t distribute your keyfile);
you specify that use is subject to the License Agreement found at https://downloads.gemtalksystems.com/pub/GemStone_License_Agreement.pdf <https://downloads.gemtalksystems.com/pub/GemStone_License_Agreement.pdf>; and 
you state clearly that this is not an official GemTalk Systems LLC release, but your independent repackaging.
Beyond that, we welcome efforts to make GemStone easier to deploy. Does that seem reasonable?
