    Open Sourcing

    Hello

    I'm considering releasing LZP2 source code, as it is quite stable now, and looking for guidance on better way to proceed.

    As several authors here have selected to open their sources, i figure it would be good place to collect opinions.

    For instance :
    - Should a license be associated with the source code ?
    - If yes which one do you recommend ? and how to proceed ? (integrating into source code ? separate file ?)
    - Is it preferable to have the source code registered into a safe platform such as sourceforge ? (If yes, which one is recommended, and how to proceed ?)

    Thanks

    1. not necessarily. by default, you don't give any rights to readers

    2. it depends on your goals. if you not sure, start with most restrictiove one - i.e. GPL or no license

    look at other sources, f.e. TTA

    3. if you expect that your code will be stealed

    i recommend google code or ms codeplex. google is more powerful, while codeplex easier to use. you may start with codeplex, learn how to use it and then abandon project
