What License and Where to Release

Postby bpalone » Mon Apr 23, 2012 5:32 am

I've written a small GUI for a command line process and wish to give it out, including the source. I can't see it needing to have a continuing updates, etc. So, my questions are:

1. Which License should I use?

2. Where should I release it?

I'm up to beating it around here and using it on a regular basis. Need to rattle it around some more and then clean up the code a bit. So, any thoughts or suggestions welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

1. GPL if you want to promote the free software spirit and make sure that any forks also remain open source. Or BSD if you just want a simple "do what you like, but give me credit" alternative.

2. Set up a SourceForge page, and once you've made a release, post on freecode.com

Good luck!
