Default Puppet switching from GPL to Apache licence

From http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...e-1236494.html

Puppet Labs, the developer of the open source configuration management tool Puppet, has announced that, as of Puppet 2.7, it is switching from the GPLv2 licence to the Apache 2.0 licence. In a blog posting, Luke Kanies, founder and CEO of Puppet Labs, explained that the company's goal was "to have Puppet everywhere".

The GPL, Kanies said, was inhibiting that ubiquity because, rightly or wrongly, some businesses believe that the GPL would force them to share their proprietary code. "With Apache, these companies can focus on whether Puppet will make their solution better", he noted, "and not worry about whether they'll have to make significant business changes to use it."
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
