I don't mind releasing source code under GPL. I actually had GPL in mind while writing this.

All installed components are released under GPL. The installer itself is not but i think it's licence is fully GPL compatible ( http://www.jrsoftware.org/files/is/license.txt )


As for a more flexible way configuring smartd via a GUI tool, maybe in the future, but for now i really had "quick and dirty" installation in mind.

I will release source code (once i cleaned it a bit up because it's kinda messy as of today) and a final version of the installer tool probably in next weeks.


I wrote this installer as one-time software for my company, but i would take maintainership for support and new versions if needed.


Cheers (or Mfg ?)

Ozy de Jong.

I will add quoting to smartd.conf in the future.

Are you willing to release the sourcecode under GPL ?
Are all components OpenSource?

BTW: An even more flexible solution would be a stand-alone GUI tool to
edit smartd.conf. Ideally be written using a portable Framework (GTK2,
wxWidgets) for the benefit of our other platforms (Linux, FreeBSD, ...).
GSmartControl uses GTK2 and proves that this works well.
