      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
      (LGPL).

      New node_attributes facility and table.
      
      Auxiliary node attributes, such as service tag #, BIOS version, etc., are
      should now be placed into the node_attributes table.  This can be accomplished
      by either using the node_attributes command line tool, or by using the
      modnodeattributes_form.php3 form (not linked in anywhere yet, but will be
      in a moment).  Attribute names and values are checked for sanity using
      table_regex entries.  Also note that I started with the nodecontrol stuff
      as a template.
      
      The command line tool and web form (which simply calls the command line tool
      to actually do the modifications) can add, delete, and/or remove attributes.
      
      Finally, note that the bios_version column has been moved from the nodes
      table to the node_attributes table.  The Node Information page will show
      the list of current attributes at the bottom of the info table.
