There is probably an anecdote from the Bell Labs from the early 1970s which either solves your problem or improves your understanding of it.

comment Should Version Control Softwares be used from Command Line or GUI
Why is this "ideally"? If you're comfortable with the CLI alone, then I don't see where you could perceive a loss of some sort.

comment Is the author of an open-source application obliged to make the “open-sourceness” visible?
I am not talking about your rights, I am talking about your customers' expectations. It would seem wiser to be up front about this; those who would rather compile the software themselves don't waste their money, and actually even those who do buy it from you might well feel good about being informed of their options. This is certainly not legal advice.

"Lack of skills" sounds like an awful reason for making something open source. If you have a magnificent idea, but lack technical skills, then maybe. I would not go open source until I found a technically skilled partner who is prepared to commit to producing a first cut of the code, and who would like to go open source.

comment How to release project under public domain?
If you do not mean "public domain", please rephrase your question. By releasing something to the public domain, you waive all your rights as an author and copyright holder. That's what "public" and "domain" in "public domain" mean. There will be no "license" beyond that.

I imagine the app store might have a reputation to maintain, and thus your user agreement with them might have a say in this. The GPL doesn't require you to put anything in the advertising or the application itself, but as a customer, I would certainly be dismayed if I found out later that I bought from you something I could have obtained for free. Don't you care about your own reputation at all?
