We have already shipped a product using RTEMS/GoAhead, and to comply
with the GoAhead license, we:

1) Notified GoAhead of our product release.

2) Included "Incorporates GoAhead WebServer blah blah" in the front
   matter of our manual.

3) Display the GoAhead logo on the index page generated by our product.

Our reading of the GoAhead license was that we were required to do
all of those things, even though we got their code as part of the
RTEMS distribution.
