comment Execute sudo without Password?
@wil93 Define "untrusted"... Do you read every single script you download before running it? No, that would be a hassle. Besides, I said that was just a case in many.

comment Execute sudo without Password?
@wil93 you are missing the point: a script that calls for sudo install crapware will not ask for a password in this case and might mess up everything you have, and you do not need to be physically next to a machine to distribute scripts last time I checked... This is just an example.

comment How do I merge 2 VMware disks in to a single one?
ext4 growth is possible without any further steps, even for / partitions. resize2fs will do that for you even on less than recent distributions.

I am telling you that there is no reason to do that, why 2 hard disks? You can expand the existing one...

comment How do I install the LSI megacli in Ubuntu?
Why dont you get the latest megacli downloaded from the LSI site? Plus you need more than just the executable, the zip file you get the contains the program is a deb package that you need to install in to your system.

I see your point, but I am not trying to discuss what copyright allows you or not to do and how different it is from a license used at the moment in Ubuntu MAAS.

comment Is Ubuntu MAAS free?
@LuísdeSousa there 2 issues here: 1 is the current status of MAAS as a opensource project and its current license, that is well covered and explained in both answers bellow. The other is the need of including a copyright notice in a "how to install Openstack with MAAS" doc that prevents me from using it as a work presentation tool. To me that shows intent in the future of the project as it is, specially knowing that the documentation is created from contributions from users and developers. That is my concern and what the question is all about. Its a legit question and concern as it stands now.

I know :) Its just that you say I can't remember what the current name for this copyright agreement and I shared the link with you. Nothing else.

Ok, it was more to provide the current "Canonical gets extended permissions from contributors to its projects. I can't remember what the current name for this copyright agreement but it would make it extremely easy for Canonical to release closed-source versions of its products" than to justify any doubts from my side.

One difference between the two is that the old agreement was a copyright assignment agreement (where the contributor granted ownership of the contribution to Canonical), while the new one is a copyright license agreement (where the contributor grants permission for Canonical to distribute the contribution).
