Hello everybody

I'm working on a new Xournal version (Xournal++, not yet present on a
webpage, only in the SVN).

I used Poppler to display PDF and also for PDF export, to implement the
PDF export (merging two PDFs together) I access Poppler without any

I'm working on Ubuntu, which contain all necessary headers, but other
distributions don't.

Now there is a discussion if it's allowed to access Poppler without
frontend, or not.

I thought it should be allowed, because on the poppler Wiki are also two
projects listed which access poppler without frontent,

But now I need a clear answer if it's allowed or not, and if not if
there is another way for me to implement this without breaking any rules.

Thank you for the answer.
