comment Who has right over the code that comes from contributions in an open source project?
Check out what Open Street Map had to do to change license. They had to get pemission from every contributor for the change or if they couldn't, drop that contributors map data. It literally took years.

Do the contributors agree to any kind of agreement about licenses when they send you stuff?

Have you contacted the original authors to see what they think? They may be fine with you using whatever license.

comment Can I use the code for responsive video on this github link under a license?
@AlexanderTorstling I'm pretty sure that's true (But IANAL), but I don't know why your saying that. What bearing does that have in this case? In this case the license is not clearly stated. It says "Copyright (c) 2011 ZURB" but nothing about what the license actually is.

comment How to approach design to minimize conflicts when distributing individual locations to merchants
"To his surprise, almost all the spots have already been taken, including his usual one." Wait, is the problem A) there are spaces for all the traders, but they want to bicker over who gets the best ones? B) there are to many traders, and often traders can't even get any spaces?

"Now he can either hope someone will not show up so he can take their spot at the last minute" Is traders who have got up early to book a slot, already paid for it online then not showing up really that big a problem?

comment PHP composer question
Why do you want to "clean the package folder structure up a little"? If you leave your vendor folder as composer wants it'll be easy to get updates later. If you mess with it won't. Why not just leave it and get on with your code?

comment What are some efficient ways to set up my environment when working on a remote site?
Just get an up to date copy of the code. git init a new repo, and prepare your first commit with lots of git adds. Note you generally want to commit code only, not config files. If a config file is going to be different on different machines (like the database name, host, user & password) don't add it. Now commit, and push to your chosen remote repository. Now start using that repository everywhere. All code changes now flow thru git for better code management!

Have you looked at Version Control Software such as Git, mercurial or subversion?

Your obviously just worried about this ... Presumably your current situation is reflected on your CV and they still gave you a interview - that's a good sign. Just go for it!
