comment How and what should I be (unit) testing for in this method?

comment What precisely do I/my company need to do “make available/publish” source code changes and satisfy GPL/LGPL

comment Use of AGPL software on server with closed-source software
the "I may also use some IPC, like datagram sockets to provide a bridge between the AGPL software and the other software. This closed sourced software will provide a web interface to the user." part seems more directly a breach of the license to me
