      Replace license symbols with {{{ }}}-enclosed license blocks. · 6df609a9
      Eric Eide authored
      This commit is intended to makes the license status of Emulab and
      ProtoGENI source files more clear.  It replaces license symbols like
      "EMULAB-COPYRIGHT" and "GENIPUBLIC-COPYRIGHT" with {{{ }}}-delimited
      blocks that contain actual license statements.
      
      This change was driven by the fact that today, most people acquire and
      track Emulab and ProtoGENI sources via git.
      
      Before the Emulab source code was kept in git, the Flux Research Group
      at the University of Utah would roll distributions by making tar
      files.  As part of that process, the Flux Group would replace the
      license symbols in the source files with actual license statements.
      
      When the Flux Group moved to git, people outside of the group started
      to see the source files with the "unexpanded" symbols.  This meant
      that people acquired source files without actual license statements in
      them.  All the relevant files had Utah *copyright* statements in them,
      but without the expanded *license* statements, the licensing status of
      the source files was unclear.
      
      This commit is intended to clear up that confusion.
      
      Most Utah-copyrighted files in the Emulab source tree are distributed
      under the terms of the Affero GNU General Public License, version 3
      (AGPLv3).
      
      Most Utah-copyrighted files related to ProtoGENI are distributed under
      the terms of the GENI Public License, which is a BSD-like open-source
      license.
      
      Some Utah-copyrighted files in the Emulab source tree are distributed
      under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License, version 2.1

      * Replace the argument processing code in all pages. Currently we rely on · 48acc8e3

        register_globals=1 to turn POST/GET/COOKIES arguments in local variables.
        This is known to be a terrible security risk, and we keep saying we are
        going to fix it, and now I am. In order to accomplish this on a
        transitional basis (since I don't want the entire web interface to stop
        working while I debug it), and because the code just needs the cleanup, I
        am doing it like this: Each page will sport new declarations at the top:
      
      	RequiredPageArguments("experiment", PAGEARG_EXPERIMENT,
                                    "template",   PAGEARG_TEMPLATE,
                                    "instance",   PAGEARG_INSTANCE,
                                    "metadata",   PAGEARG_METADATA,
                                    "osinfo",     PAGEARG_OSINFO,
                                    "image",      PAGEARG_IMAGE,
                                    "project",    PAGEARG_PROJECT,
                                    "group",      PAGEARG_GROUP,
                                    "user",       PAGEARG_USER,
      			      "node",       PAGEARG_NODE,
      			      "yesno",      PAGEARG_BOOLEAN,
      			      "message",    PAGEARG_STRING,
      			      "age",        PAGEARG_INTEGER,
                                    "cost",       PAGEARG_NUMERIC,
                                    "formfields", PAGEARG_ARRAY,
                                    "unknown",    PAGEARG_ANYTHING);
      
      	OptionalPageArguments("canceled", PAGEARG_BOOLEAN);
      
        The first token in each pair is the name of the global variable to
        set, and the second token is the type. So, for "experiment" we look at
        the URL for a pid/eid or exptidx, etc, sanity check them (safe for a
        DB query), and then try to find that experiment in the DB. If it maps
        to an experiment, set global variable $experiment to the object. Since
        its a required argument, produce an error if not supplied. Similar
        treatment for optional arguments, with the obvious difference.
      
        The goal is to have ALL argument processing in one place, consistent,
        and correct. I've found numerous places where we leak unchecked
        arguments into queries. It also cuts out a lot of duplicated code.
      
      * To make the above easier to deal with, I've been replacing lots of
        hardcoded URLS in the code of the form:
      
      	foo.php3?pid=$pid&eid=$eid ...
      
        with
      
              CreateURL("foo", $experiment)
      
        which creates and returns the neccessary url string, by looking at
        the type of its arguments (experiment, template, instance, etc.)
      
        Eventually plan to replace them all so that URL handling throughout
        the code is all defined in one place (all the new URL code is in
        url_defs.php).
      
      * I have cranked up error reporting to tell me anytime a variable is
        used before it is initialized, plus a bunch of other stuff that PHP
        deems improper. Think of it like -Wall ... and boy we get a lot of
        warnings.  A very large percentage of the diffs are to fix all these
        warnings.
      
        The warnings are currently going to /usr/testbed/log/php-errors.log,
        and I'll be adding a script to capture them each night and mail them
        to tbops. This file also gets errors (this will be a change for
        developers; rather then seeing errors and warnings dumped in the
        middle of web pages, they will go to this file instead).
      
      * Major refactoring of the code. More objects (nodes, images, osids).
        Moving tons of queries into the objects in the hopes of someday
        getting to a point where we can split the web interface onto a
        different server.  Lots of general cleanup.

      Add MapQuest-style pan and zoom controls to the floormap.php3 page, and · aa7d57a9
      Russ Fish authored
      generally improve the clarity and appearance of the maps.  The scale factor
      buttons numbered 1-5 actually correspond to scale factors of 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5,
      and 3.
      
      Notice that the floorimages table in the database now has an integer "scale"
      column to distinguish the cached zoomed-in images with a suffix "-[1-5].jpg" .
      
      I use jpeg files instead of the png files that were used before.  They look as
      good or better, and are a third the size.  Panning around at a given zoom
      factor just involves cropping out a different rectangle of the scaled-up
      images.
      
      The 0311X064_[1-4]fl.pdf floor map files we got from Michael Kay started
      out life in Adobe Illustrator.  Although GhostScript/gv crash while
      trying to draw the pdf files, extracting them into PostScript files in
      Acrobat on Coke allows GhostScript to render them flawlessly.
      
      I started out using gs to render jpeg files in the shell, and then
      found that ImageMagick uses the same GhostScript renderer, and nicely
      handles cropping, drawing and annotations, and format conversion as well.
      
      The PostScript rendering gets slow at higher zoom factors.  So I cache the
      zoomed floor images, scaled up by rendering the PostScript files at a finer
      dot-pitch (density) in GhostScript, and then cropping out the right rectangle
      to register them properly.
      
      For readability, and to avoid having the thin lines and bitmap fonts used in
      some parts of the PostScript map from falling between the pixel cracks, I
      actually render at twice the pixel density and filter down to the final image
      with a gaussian -sharpen option to keep it from looking blurry.
      
      ImageMagick is callable from both the shell and as the Image::Magick package
      in Perl.  I converted the Perl logic in floormap.in to use Image::Magick
      instead of the GD graphics library, resulting in anti-aliased (smoothed)
      drawing of the wireless node dots and labels on floor maps for a better
      appearance.  Then I added optional scaling and centering arguments which
      select the proper cached zoomed-in image, and drive the logic for cropping and
      drawing.
      
      I modified the floormap.php3 file to wrap an input form around a set of zoom
      control buttons and the floormap image.  The zoom buttons set the scale
      argument to the Perl floormap script called on the server.  The floor map
      image itself is wrapped in a graphical submit button, so clicking on it
      returns the mouse coordinates within the image, which are then sent to the
      centering argument of the Perl script.

      Add a "wireless" link from the Node Status page. · 495e3cee
      Leigh Stoller authored
      Remove isadmin() restriction from floormap pages; at some point I
      assume we make the floormaps publically available.
      
      Make MEB the default argument to the floormap page until such time
      that we need something fancier.
      
      Add a link to the wireless tutorial I am currently throwing up onto
      paper.
