All original contributions to NetworkManager are licensed under the
GNU General Public License, version 2 or later, or, if another license
is specified as governing the file or directory being modified, such
other license. See the file COPYING in this directory for details.
NetworkManager is partly licensed under terms of GNU Lesser General Public License
version 2 or later (LGPL-2.0+). That is for example the case for libnm.
For historical reasons, the daemon itself is licensed under terms of GNU General
Public License, version 2 or later (GPL-2.0+). See the license comment in the source
Note that all novel contributions to NetworkManager MUST be made under terms of
LGPL-2.0+, that is also the case for parts that are currently licensed GPL-2.0+.
The reason for that is that we might eventually relicense everything as LGPL and
new contributions already must agree with that future change.
