Post subject:  *IMPORTANT*: Contributing to T4

Hello

I should have done this before but anyway, if you do not agree I'll remove whatever was already contributed :)

I think I'll release T4 as GPL or LGPL, but I could change my mind until release and say MIT or whatever, anyway this will obviously be opensource.

But in order to avoid the headaches og T3 and GPL-isation, I'll ask people that contribute to release copyright to me, or to give me right to relicense the code as I see fit (you can add a "as long as its opensource" if you wish, it'll never change :)

Thanks!

So I hope we don't run afoul of any earlier licenses...

If the earlier licenses are not an issue, then I am all for it!

Since DG is on holiday for the week and noone else has commented yet.

Those look really good Mushroomhermit!

I would advise you start a new thread for your work though and send Angloki a PM.
He has already started making some tiles for TE4: viewtopic.php?f=39&t=21934

Contributions, especially of art assets, is definitely welcome.

I quite like your idea of how to represent swarms I must say.

I release my copyright to DarkGod. There, I've said it. :)

:)
BTW you dont have to licence our modules under my name as I've seen most of you do, this applies only to code contributed to TE4 itself, your creation is yours.

I assume this means the commented license you put at the beginning of each lua file? I just pulled those out of my module and dropped a single copy into a LICENSE file. That should suffice, right?

Post subject:  Re: *IMPORTANT*: Contributing to T4

Well the GPL recommends that it's put inside each file so I did :)

Having the license inside each file protects the file itself and therefore all the work you have done on the file. If you pull all of those licenses into one place (and not in the file itself) you effectively remove any protection from the code you wrote.

I would very strongly urge you to put the license into each piece of code your write!

Very good, I put the license back into each file and simply changed the name of the module, the copyright, my name and email. Just to make sure, there does not need to be any mention of T4 or ToME in that license? I have put a copy of what I put at the top of each file below after "xxx"ing out anything some automated trawler may find useful.
