comment How can I diagram data-locking scenarios?
@Snowman I guess I'm just not sure how I would represent a given scenario. I had an idea, but it seems overly complex: for each component (i.e. column) of the sequence diagram, have lines running down for each possible lock it can hold. When information moves between components, it will physically run up against the lock. This doesn't account for different locks for different data, though -- and doesn't account for contrived locking (where everyone must attempt to lock the data before setting it -- what we have).

comment Is it safe to use old code in a new project?
Are you sure the search algorithm doesn't exist separately from you? It's unlikely (but possible) you developed something entirely novel – if the algorithm exists elsewhere (with proper licensing of course, e.g. Wikipedia), then it's entirely fair game.

comment What's the purpose of keeping a changelog if everyone uses their VCS properly?
@JimG. Note that your proposed duplicate makes no mention of a CHANGELOG file and certainly no mention of end-users. What makes you think it's a duplicate, though?

@amon Excellent point, as Jens made also in his answer :)

@ratchetfreak That was my thought, too. There is even a standard format for changelogs – you would think they can easily be generated from git log or similar.

After the question's first edit, it has become much better. @gnat, another look is in order.

@immibis LaTeX3 knows this is a problem (even LaTeX2e, but it failed to get the point across). Ideally, there is no coding done on the document level (exposed to the author). All of the 'debugging' is done on the code level, where you have people who are familiar with the language do that work. Trust me, expl3 error messages are much more helpful :)

+0, but agreed - this would be more appropriate as a comment.

comment OSS Non-Commericial License
If you want such a license, though – you may wish to check out Creative Commons. I believe it has provisions that limit sale of the work to only its originator. To be clear though – CC isn't an OSL (as made clear by Jörg's answer. You can perhaps release the source under CC-SA-BY-NC, which would prohibit sale, prohibit re-releasing under a different license (I believe), and prohibit (what amounts to) plagiarism.
