comment Where and how should one announce their new open source application
@Fox There are lots and lots of download websites for assorted gratis software. But usually people don't browse through these websites looking for software they could need. Usually people have a specific problem, google "how to solve problem X?", find some forum post where someone says "Maybe try using Fox Problem X Solver", then they google for "Fox Problem X Solver Download" and then they find the download site. But without the forum post they would never have found your software.

This would be a good question for the new site Open Source Stackexchange which is going to launch any day now.

comment Best way to handle blank dates
@marcg I know, but I wanted the answer to be applicable for a wider audience. The problem doesn't just apply to this one class, it applies to every situation where you have variables which can have an "unknown" state.

comment To which extent can one take ideas from programs under GPL in developing a commercial app?
@tgkprog A website (like Facebook) can use GPL code all it wants without having to license anything under GPL as long as it is all server-sided. The GPL only forces you to open source your program to those people who receive copies of said program. When it all runs on your own servers, you aren't distributing it, so you can keep it to yourself. There is the AGPL license which closes this loophole, but there aren't many projects which use it.

comment What happens if some server side GPLv2 code is leaked?
This question might fare better on the proposed open source stackexchange site which still needs 53 people to commit to it before it can go into public beta.

comment At what point can I call GPL code my code?
This is a good answer, Ixrec. Did you consider to commit to the proposal for the new Stackexchange site Open Source Stackexchange? It still needs 78 people to commit to it so it can go into beta.

...or maybe someone from the Time magazine received a fat bonus from Sun's marketing team for that article?
