I have a question about "psycopg and the GPL" License.
Is it correct in the following interpretations?
> As a special exception, specific permission is granted for the GPLed code in
> this distribition to be linked to OpenSSL and PostgreSQL libpq without invoking
> GPL clause 2(b).
If I distribute psycopg and to be linked PostgreSQL libpq,
I may distribute libpq under terms of my choice？
> Note that the GPL was chosen to avoid proprietary adapters based on psycopg

"all the other points of the GPL" means "excepting GPL clause 2(b)"？
As long as respect 1. and 2. , i may distribute X(X is linked psycopg)
under terms of my choice？
