-Appendix A  Intel®  DPDK License Overview
-=========================================
-
-
-The following describes the various licenses used by the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK).
-The purpose of the Intel® DPDK is to prove the abilities of the Intel® architecture processors and to provide users with a strong set of examples, libraries and proof points.
-By placing the majority of this software under the BSD License, users may choose to use the Intel® as is, parts of it, or just the ideas for their programs.
-All code may be modified by the user to suit their project needs and requirements.
-
-.. note::
-
-    The license in each source file takes precedence over this document, and should be used as the definitive license for that file.
-    All users should seek their legal team's guidance with respect to the licensing used by the Intel® DPDK.
-
-
-
-The following table lists those files (or libraries) that are not under a BSD License. In some cases, these files are part of the standard Intel® DPDK release package,
-and in other cases may be a separate package that requires a separate download to be added to the Intel® DPDK. This document spells out those cases where possible.
-
-The sections following the table provide the various licenses used. Please note that copyright notices may change overtime.
-It is the responsibility of all users to understand these licenses and seek their legal team's guidance.
-
-The use of the GPLv2 License is confined to files in kernel loadable modules.
-
-The use of the Dual BSD/LGPLv2 License and Dual BSD/GPL License allows use with either free/open source software or with proprietary software in userspace.
