Hi Binan,

Already when through that page, but not 100% clear.

As I understand it, to make it possible you should :
    1) the copyright holders of the GPL code should agree on an
      exception to link against the non-GPL lib
    2) owner of the non-GPL lib you give you the permission to use
      it (if not fully public).
