Hi Stefan,

I presume that you plan to offer a commercial license of your component
as a product. In this case, a repository owned and branded by your
company would be the most natural way to host it.

The Genode-world repository [1] is designated for community-maintained
open-source software. The GCL [2] is not an open-source license
according to the OSI definition. Therefore, it would not fit naturally
into the Genode-world repository.

There is no such place yet. Right now, the best way for giving your
component public exposure would be an introductory article at
Genodians.org. Please refer to [3] for the instructions for publishing
articles there.
