I recently had this conversation with Owen (rest of the conversation is here):
I haven't forgotten about you. Good news though. We have recently gotten approval to make the server api as well as the interfaces for writing custom services, authenticators, etc GPLv2 + classpath exception. We haven't updated the code yet, but this is coming very soon. I would anticipate the next official release should contain this new licensing scheme. In the meantime, keep an eye on our incremental releases: http://download.java.net/maven/2/com/projectdarkstar/server/sgs-server-dist/
Either the next one, or the one following will likely have this change.
Based on that, I decided it was time to move forward with the darkstar-based projects...
Since I have a Hudson server, I decided to let it keep track of how to make it successfully build...
At first I was trying to build with JDK7, but it kept failing on the Javadoc module saying that the jars had invalid characters in it. That went away once I changed to JDK6. I also had to tell it to skip the tests, because one of them just hung forever...
The Hudson job for the server is here.
The Hudson job for the client is here.
The Hudson job for the maven plugin is here.
The distributables were delivered to Nexus.
I created a new user on the server ('darkstar'/'darkstar') and unzipped the sgs-server-dist-0.9.10-SNAPSHOT.zip
I then created a symlink (/home/darkstar/current to /home/darkstar/sgs-server-dist-0.9.10-SNAPSHOT)
I don't know if it is correct, but I made this SMF manifest for it.

Guess it's time to build an app...
