MoveOut: License? I want to extend it
« on: April 22, 2015, 06:32:18 AM »
Hello,

I used MoveOut for some time, but due to it's limitations I ended up extending its functionality. Some of the things I added are:
  • Comma separated list of values for included files (*.jp?g,*.png,*.gif)
  • Relative path management
  • Fixed some bugs like overwriting not working
  • Added age to the list of rule's option, so you can move files based on last modification time

My plan is to create a forked program from it and release it as open source. But I would need to know MoveOut's license and I need original author agreement.

Thanks.

Hopefully skrommel, the author will respond and, ideally, post a little statement about his apps in general.
Could you perhaps draft a short minimal suggested "license" for him, that he could adopt?

Having said that -- skrommel has never expressed anything but approval for people taking his source code and modifying it, and if your intention is to make an open source fork, I cannot fathom a scenario where skrommel would object to that for the MoveOut tool.

I'm not an expert on licenses. In fact I started to use them just some weeks ago. I usually use simplified BSD clause 3.

This, as he's the only one that can answer your question.  Bumping isn't going to help in this case.

Hi danielo515,

A ton of time has elapsed since you posted. Did you end up updating MoveOut? If so, will you be posting a copy for us to play with?

I'm looking forward to see what you've done.

(I'll PM him right after writing this.)
