= Changing the libsensors License =

When lm-sensors 2 was written, all the code was placed under the GPL license (version 2), including the library, libsensors. Over time, a number of developers complained to us that this made it impossible for them to link their application to libsensors due to license incompatibilities. Indeed, a library released under the GPL can only be used by code itself released under the GPL. This excludes proprietary tools but also tools released under BSD-style licenses and libraries released under the LGPL, for example.

For a long time we have been ignoring the issue, because it wasn’t easy to solve. Basically we needed to get the approval of all copyright holders and preferably all other significant contributors if we wanted to be able to change the license. That being said, the problem was real, so we decided to tackle it still. So we started a 1-year campaign to collect as many approvals as possible from all past contributors to libsensors, ending on July 1st, 2010.

Here are some examples of useful scp commands:

$ scp file1 debian@server1:/tmp/

Password: ******
Above code copies file1 to server1.

$ scp server1:/tmp/file1

Password: ******
Copy remote file1 to local working directory. Use the -p option to preserve permissions and timestamps on the copied files.

$ scp -p file1 server1:/tmp/If the SSH service is configured to listen on a port other than the default port 22, use -P to indicate that port on the scp command line:

$ scp -P 12345 file1 server1:/tmp/

Connect to a particular port.To do recursive copies, from a particular point in the remote file system, use the -r option:

$ scp -r dir1 debian@server1:/tmp/

Copies all dir1 to remote /tmp .
I hope I was helpful.
