Last months, I've been working on Saturnin with one goal : going open source (yay)
So, after spending countless time on it, everything's done, and I finally moved my sourcecode to BitBucket (I'll get back to that point another time).
But there's still one thing to take care of (well amongst others ), before opening the depot to the public : I need to choose a licence.
Of course, there are constraints :
- the future version will use plug-ins, and I don't want to force anyone contributing one to provide its sourcecode
- some of the actual code used in Saturnin wasn't done by myself (the SCSP core is Stef's for instance, the 68K code is from either Turbo68K or Musashi) ... I will put it into separate dlls also, but that must be taken into account
-some other things that I don't remind now
After looking into existing licenses, I think GPL is too restrictive to my point of view, but LGPL could be a good candidate.
As I'm pretty new to that kind of stuff, I'm seeking advice ... so If you have anything relevant to say about that, please leave me a comment.
