Licensing

From ZeptoOS
Jump to: navigation, search

Top


In general, new, original software developed under the ZeptoOS project is distributed under the GNU GPL / LGPL licenses, as appropriate. Those licenses can be found in the top-level directory of the ZeptoOS tarball. If you are not familiar with the GPL or LGPL licensing, please see the files above and also visit http://www.gnu.org/.

However, ZeptoOS is a collection of many existing software components, packaged and distributed under a number of licenses, such as:

GPL / LGPL
Linux kernel, GNU libc, FUSE, PVFS, BusyBox, iptables, NBD, psmisc,
CPL (Common Public License)
DCMF, SPI,
BSD
MPICH, TAU (note that TAU is distributed separately from the ZeptoOS tarball), netkit-rsh

The important thing is that all these licenses are free/open source, OSI-approved licenses.
