Hi! We developed a tool to distribute SSH keys also to servers behind gateways in Ruby, also from a list of keys to a list of hosts, to execute a script on each host, to scp a file to a list of hosts and to ssh to a list of host one after another, plus some other little features. Main feature is key distribution to servers. We use it for own and customer machines. We tought it to be a good idea to release it as free software. So here it is: https://www.teamix.org/projects/distkeys git://oss.teamix.org/distkeys.git Since we use Debian ourselves on many system, we would like to make a Debian package out of it. We did not finally decide on a license. Current favorite is GPL 2 or later which should be compatible with the licenses the libraries the script use use. ruby: Ruby 2-clause BSDL (see the file BSDL) ruby-net-ssh: Expat ruby-net-ssh-gateway: Expat, I think ruby-net-sftp: Expat, I think ruby-termios: GPL (2+ according to copyright file) What are usual licenses for such a kind of program? Do you have any recommendation or see any issues with GPL? I tend to use GPL-2 or later in order to avoid any possible license incompatibilies that are specific to the GPL-3. But according to  the GPL-3 would work fine as well? Any recommendations? I asked this already on the debian-ruby mailinglist together with some packaging questions, but I bet the license stuff might be more suitably asked here.  http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#GPLCompatibleLicenses Thanks, -- Martin Steigerwald - teamix GmbH - http://www.teamix.de gpg: 19E3 8D42 896F D004 08AC A0CA 1E10 C593 0399 AE90
