I joined Advogato because I hoped to hear someones opinion on some project I am working on. It is a public rating system.
Which is the problem, since I'm not actually working that much; I got a php front end, which works with a mysql database, and a C program. Sometimes I'm a lazy bastard, and so i consider most of the stuff that is missing, like
- mailing passwords to users that forgot them,
- better web-design
- better security (=start using $_GET and $_POST, errorlogging(E_ALL))
- writing the final shell script that glues the php and C together
- adding a database layer for portability
I am considering making the code public and see what happens, but it is not like I got a handle on something like running a popular site yet, which I imagine this might become, so I wondered whether people(you!) think if I could use a time-bombed license, by which I mean that after say 4 years, the code gets licensed under a proprietary license to each major contributor, the GPL, and some other OSI - approved licenses.
Also, would this procedure find approval by a host like sourceforge ? For comparision, what is the worst license that is used on sourceforge so far ?
Your input will be much appreciated. Or maybe you are the partner I'm looking for ?
