RE: [Xen-API] Re: repository for storage manager (/opt/xensource/sm)
Summary: The SM code in XCP is supposed to be under the LGPL, the same as xapi.
Therefore the header in

is correct. (Except the years in the (C) statements look a bit out of date)

I'm sure you're correct: the SM code hasn't made it onto the source isos yet.
This is a bug in the build system which should be fixed.

The plan was to keep the mirror on xenbits up-to-date. We (JonL, MikeM and I)
were talking about this today. We hope to set up something to automatically
maintain the mirror so that no one has to remember to push manually.

We should also add a LICENSE.LGPL file to reinforce the header comments.

I suspect this is an oversight: someone created some new code and cut and
pasted the wrong header. Could you clarify, Julian?
