comment Git: Keeping track of work in progress
Googling some more, I bumped into git notes. I'm vaguely thinking it could be useful here.

comment Git: Keeping track of work in progress
Oh, I already use Trac, which nicely integrates a bug tracker with source browsing, version conttol, and a wiki. I was hoping there'd be something really lightweight for this particular use case. Creating a ticket is a bit of overkill for just communicating with myself, and doesn't have anything specifically for keeping track of remote clones or stashed code. But now that you mention it, creating a plugin to do just that could be a good investment.

You mean you never fork anything on GitHub without creating a ticket for yourself and following up on it when you feel inspired and/or confident? The amount of abandoned forks on GitHub must correspond to an awful mass of abandoned tickets then.

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.
