The software in this repository is under a number of licenses:
bin/ GPL v2+
go/src/nshd/ GPL v2+
go/src/gopkg.in/yaml.v2 LGPL v3, with linking exception
go/src/golang.org/x/sys/unix 3-clause BSD license
go/src/git.lukeshu.com/go/libgnulinux/dl GPL v2+, with documentation output clarification
go/src/git.lukeshu.com/go/libgnulinux/inotify LGPL v2.1+
go/src/git.lukeshu.com/go/libgnulinux/getgr LGPL v2.1+
go/src/git.lukeshu.com/go/libnslcd/ LGPL v2.1+
go/src/git.lukeshu.com/go/libsystemd/ Apache v2.0
build-aux/ AGPL v3+
The general notion is that the build system is AGPL (v3+), the core
application is GPL (v2+), while supporting libraries that might be
useful outside of this specific application are LGPL (v2.1+), with the
- The systemd package is Apache licensed because of code taken from
CoreOS and Docker.
- The dl package is GPL v2+ licensed because of wording in comments
taken from the Linux Programmer's Manual.
- The YAML and sys/unix libraries use other licenses because they are
3rd-party libraries, and that's how the authors licensed them.
The effective license of the 'nshd' program as a whole is GPL v3+; it
links together code that is GPL v2+ with code that is Apache v2.0; the
GPL v2 and Apache v2.0 are incompatible; while the GPL v3 (and
presumably future versions) is compatible with Apache v2.0; so one is
forced to take the "any later version" option on the GPL v2+ code.
