The frontend is Ksplice Inc's Uptrack service, not ksplice. The
installable bits of Uptrack seem to be GPLv2 (only the artwork has an
exception which is fair enough). I couldn't find any of the backend bits
available for download though and as others have pointed out in this
thread there's still the problem of making ksplice fit in with Fedora's
approach to kernel updates (to be honest, I think it'd be a lot easier
to run a service like this for RHEL or CentOS particularly if you're
only interested in selected security errata).
