Our main license, the LGPL, ensures you can safely use community projects to develop and deploy applications whilst keeping your source code private. You may even keep changes made to project source code private as long as you don't distribute the resulting binaries.
Other licenses, such as the Apache License, offer different usage terms. Check with the projects you're using to see which licenses apply.
