There are a few components incorrectly marked GPLv3 in the
iDRAC_3.0.zip file Licenses/ directory (e.g. the Linux kernel).
Someone is looking into fixing that. The Sources/ directory contains
the source code and correct license files.
AFAIK, none of the components in the iDRAC 6 firmware
are GPLv3-licensed, or require us to provide a full build and reflash
environment. That's under consideration, but not currently planned.
