Ubuntu MAAS, very cool, awesome in fact, looks like a unique tool for several jobs.
It looks free, but part of
its documentation starts already with clauses that would scare anyone with interest in it:
- Documentation is copy righted by Canonical;
- Documentation must be used only for non-commercial purposes;
- If documentation is distributed within the non-commercial clause you must retain copyright;
It just sounds a lot for a guide on how to install MAAS + Juju + Openstack and that scares me a bit. Why does documentation built from the community prevent me from doing anything except look at it? We produce a guide, but I cannot take it to work and look at it or show it as a possible tool that my company would be interested in using or contributing to?
My question is then: Under what license is Ubuntu MAAS distributed and what would be the reasoning for being so worried about copyrighting a simple guide like that so heavily? Is Ubuntu MAAS free?
