Custom build from source code question

Anything that doesn't fit into other topics goes here!
Hello, I am new here, and I have been using LMMS for a while now, and I absolutely LOVE it! :) But I had a question I'm sure is easy to answer but I'm unsure. I have seen LMMS is open-source, and I was wondering, can I download the source code and modify the code, and make my own custom build of LMMS, and if I wanted to, redistribute it as my own? I'm just unsure and would like to make sure if that's OK. Thanks! :D
I don't know the licence details, but probably you can, but you need to include a files, that explains were the original source code comes from.

That's how it works for Linux. But I do not know if LMMS has exactly the same open-source licence.

Yes.

Not entirely. You are obligated to
  • firmly state where you have the codebase from, and to link to the LMMS projects official page
  • Any and all code of the LMMS project, MUST be kept as Open-source! That include your added or edited code !

First and foremost we would very much like to invite You to join the project!
