1 XEN NOTICE
2 ==========
4 This license does *not* cover guest operating systems that use
5 Xen services via normal hypercalls - this is merely considered normal
6 use of Xen, and does *not* fall under the heading of "derived work".
7 Also note that the GPL below is copyrighted by the Free Software
8 Foundation, but the instance of code that it refers to (the Xen
9 virtual machine monitor) is copyrighted by me and others who actually
10 wrote it.
12 A few files are licensed under both GPL and a weaker BSD-style
13 license. This includes all files within the subdirectory
14 include/public, as described in include/public/COPYING. All such files
15 include the non-GPL license text as a source-code comment. Although
16 the license text refers generically to "the software", the non-GPL
17 license applies *only* to those source files that explicitly include
18 the non-GPL license text.
20 Note that the only valid version of the GPL as far as Xen is concerned
21 is _this_ particular version of the license (i.e., *only* v2, not v2.2
22 or v3.x or whatever), unless explicitly otherwise stated.

28 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
29 Version 2, June 1991
31 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
32 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
33 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
34 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
36 Preamble
38 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
39 freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
40 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
41 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
42 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
43 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
44 using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
45 the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
46 your programs, too.
48 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
49 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
50 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
51 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
52 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
53 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
55 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
56 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
57 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
58 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
60 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
61 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
62 you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
63 source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
64 rights.
66 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
67 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
68 distribute and/or modify the software.
70 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
71 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
72 software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
73 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
74 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
75 authors' reputations.
77 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
78 patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
79 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
80 program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
81 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
83 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
84 modification follow.
86 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
87 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
89 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
90 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
91 under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
92 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
93 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
94 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
95 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
96 language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
97 the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
99 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
100 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
101 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
102 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
103 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
104 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
106 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
107 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
108 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
109 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
110 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
111 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
112 along with the Program.
114 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
115 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
117 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
118 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
119 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
120 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
122 a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
123 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
125 b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
126 whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
127 part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
128 parties under the terms of this License.
130 c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
131 when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
132 interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
133 announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
134 notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
135 a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
136 these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
137 License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
138 does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
139 the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
141 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
142 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
143 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
144 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
145 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
146 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
147 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
148 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
149 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
151 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
152 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
153 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
154 collective works based on the Program.
156 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
157 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
158 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
159 the scope of this License.
161 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
162 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
163 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
165 a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
166 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
167 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
169 b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
170 years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
171 cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
172 machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
173 distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
174 customarily used for software interchange; or,
176 c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
177 to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
178 allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
179 received the program in object code or executable form with such
180 an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
182 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
183 making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
184 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
185 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
186 control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
187 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
188 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
189 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
190 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
191 itself accompanies the executable.
193 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
194 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
195 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
196 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
197 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
199 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
200 except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
201 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
202 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
203 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
204 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
205 parties remain in full compliance.
207 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
208 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
209 distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
210 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
211 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
212 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
213 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
214 the Program or works based on it.
216 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
217 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
218 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
219 these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
220 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
221 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
222 this License.
224 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
225 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
226 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
227 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
228 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
229 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
230 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
231 may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
232 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
233 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
234 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
235 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
237 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
238 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
239 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
240 circumstances.
242 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
243 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
244 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
245 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
246 implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
247 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
248 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
249 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
250 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
251 impose that choice.
253 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
254 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
256 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
257 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
258 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
259 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
260 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
261 countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
262 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
264 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
265 of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
266 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
267 address new problems or concerns.
269 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
270 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
271 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
272 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
273 Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
274 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
275 Foundation.
277 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
278 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
279 to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
280 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
281 make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
282 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
283 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
285 NO WARRANTY
287 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
288 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
289 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
290 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
291 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
292 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
293 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
294 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
295 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
297 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
298 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
299 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
300 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
301 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
302 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
303 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
304 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
305 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
307 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
309 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
311 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
312 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
313 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
315 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
316 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
317 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
318 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
320 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
321 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
323 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
324 it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
325 the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
326 (at your option) any later version.
328 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
329 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
330 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
331 GNU General Public License for more details.
333 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
334 along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
335 Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
338 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
340 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
341 when it starts in an interactive mode:
343 Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
344 Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
345 This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
346 under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
348 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
349 parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may
350 be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
351 mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
353 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
354 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
355 necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
357 Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
358 `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
360 <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
361 Ty Coon, President of Vice
363 This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
364 proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
365 consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
366 library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
367 Public License instead of this License.
