The EMAR project that I have been working on for about four years is finally getting a (decent) new name. NAssess.
I’m trying to decide how to publish NAssess for open-source development. Specifically, should I put the entire SVN revision history into the public domain, or just the latest version? I would just put the whole history up there without question, except that (even now) EMAR is hooked into several in-house projects that will not be open-sourced, and they all share a repository. If I extract EMAR’s thread of history from the repository and upload that, then none of the previous revisions will build anyway. Whereas the final version I will publish will have all dependencies removed, and so will build just fine. Finally, possessing the revision history for the project is a form of proof of ownership. Yes, I’m LGPL’ing it, but I’d like to prove authorship if needed down the road.
Thoughts, anyone? This will be my largest open-source contribution so far (and perhaps ever). I want it to be meaningful to people, and to do things right.
