In a nutshell

Affero GPL v3To translate the license from legalese and summarize its principles:

  • You are free to use my software for any purpose.
  • You are free to distribute my software as-is under the AGPL license.
  • You are free to study how my software works and change it.
  • You are free to distribute or offer (as a server) the changed version, if at the same time publishing the modified source code under the AGPL license.

Open development

To create and edit my software I often use git only at home for practical reasons (mostly being that the majority of my projects will never reach a mature state), then release the sources and eventually the binaries for every software version.

If you want to get involved in the development or just take a look you should drop me a note, and I'll happily switch to some open git hosting like gitlab.

Moving away from the GPL

Older software was released under the terms of the GNU General Public License (no "Affero").

As the Free Software Foundation explains, this closes a widely exploited GNU loophole of server-based software being edited but never released (as the modified software runs on the server, but is never technically distributed).
