      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).

      Make the hurting stop.  Make sshxmlrpc auto-detect things, fails over
      properly, and dump useful information when it is unable to deal with
      the peer.
      
        * xmlrpc/sshxmlrpc.py: Major update.  It now tries to autoconfigure
          itself by scanning the path for "ssh" and "plink.exe" (although I
          haven't actually tried it on windows).  Environment variables can
          now be used to turn on debugging and set the command to use for
          doing the ssh.  Before running ssh, it will check for an agent or
          a passphrase-less key and prints a warning if it finds neither.
          The last five lines read from the server, as well as the standard
          error output, are stored so they can be dumped later; helpful for
          figuring out what is actually being run on the other side.  The
          protocol layer between ssh and xml-rpc will now respond to a
          "probe" header so that clients can figure out who they are talking
          too.  The server side will now properly detect a closed connection
          and not write anything, which means no more annoying "Write to
          stdout failed" messages.  You can now pass additional options to
          ssh and set the identity.  The module can be run standalone, with
          the default action being to probe the peer:
      
            $ ./sshxmlrpc.py ssh://boss/xmlrpc
            Probe results for: ssh://boss/xmlrpc
              response time=1.49 s
            Response Headers
              date: Wed Oct 27 16:10:58 2004
      	content-length: 0
      	probe: /usr/testbed/devel/stack/lib/sshxmlrpc.py
      	probe-response: EmulabServer
      
        * xmlrpc/sshxmlrpc_server.py.in: Set the value returned by a "probe"
          to the name of the invoked module.  This way, the other side can
          figure out who they are talking to (e.g. EmulabServer
          vs. experiment vs. fs vs. osid).
      
        * event/sched/event-sched.c, event/sched/rpc.cc, event/sched/rpc.h,
          xmlrpc/script_wrapper.py.in: Multiple paths (e.g. xmlrpc,
          $prefix/sbin/sshxmlrpc_server.py) are now probed before giving up.
          Force the use of the user's default identity and protocol one.
          For event-sched, a single connection is now made at startup and
          dropped before going into the event loop.
      
        * event/sched/GNUmakefile.in: Add a dependency for the install
          target and add -I$(OBJDIR) to the CXXFLAGS.
      
        * install/ports/ulsshxmlrpcpp/Makefile,
          install/ports/ulsshxmlrpcpp/distinfo,
          install/ports/ulsshxmlrpcpp/pkg-descr: Bump version number to 1.1
          and tweak the description.
      
        * config.h.in, configure, configure.in: Add a "#define TBROOT" that
          has the install prefix.

      Some rather crude privledge level hacks to allow admin people (real · c2a4acd4
      Leigh Stoller authored
      shells on boss) to use the rpc server without an agent running.
      Using the no-passphrase key, these changes allow us to use the server
      from ops in a very restricted manner. This change is temporary, until
      I have something better in place. In the meantime, admin people change
      their auth keys files on *boss* as such:
      
      command="/usr/testbed/sbin/sshxmlrpc_server.py -ro",from="ops.emulab.net" ... rest of emulab generated key ...
      
      Note the -ro argument; very important!

      A couple more minor changes before I turn the new stuff loose. · 8fddf3ce
      Leigh Stoller authored
      * Added a wrapper class so that you can invoke methods as
        experiment.swapexp or node.reboot. So instead of invoking as
        /XMLRPC/experiment can calling swapexp, you can call the server as
        /XMLRPC and call experiment.swapexp. This allows you to use a single
        connection to talk to different parts of the API. Note this is standard
        (or is it defacto) syntax in XMLRPC.
      
      * Changed the demonstration client to talk the server this way.
      
      * Changed paperbag to allow this as well; the xmlrpc server is invoked with
        no args, which tells it to export the wrapper interface instead of a
        specific module interface.
      
      * A few more cleanups in the server, more permission checks, etc.
