Great feature, a few supplements
Authored by: CoolerQ on Aug 10, '12 12:43:28PM

As someone who has contributed to mosh, I can tell you that the license does not preclude an iOS port. However, it does have an open-source license, which means it cannot be incorporated into commercial SSH apps in the App Store. Anyone is free to take mosh and release an open-source app that uses it in the App Store.

There is specifically a waiver (https://github.com/keithw/mosh/blob/master/COPYING.iOS) that releases iOS developers from App Store related conflicts with GPLv3... but that not a free pass for commercial software to, for example, avoid the requirement to release source code.

I would be curious if this would mean that an existing iOS SSH client would be expected to release source to their entire app or just any changes they make to mosh...
