The base code comes from www.tianocore.org (BSD-like license).
Most of the added code comes from edk project from tianocore.org add I have
ported it to match the edk-2 infrastructure.
BochsPciScan comes from xen ia32 bios and is GPL.
VgaInit comes from milo, Copyright DEC and can be freely distributed (BSD-like)
The ACPI tables comes from the Xen Bios and is GPL.
The parts I wrote (SecMain, SAL) were written from scratch and is GPL.
All non-trivial contributions have a sign-off.
