FYI, if you're using the free services on GitHub, it *must* be FOSS. I
think the GitHub terms of service permit forking for public repositories
regardless of the license.

If you're the only author, you can change at will. If you accept
contributions, you'll need everyone to agree (or rip their code out).
You could go with a contributor agreement, but I'd advise against it.
Personally, I refuse to contribute to projects which require handing
copyright of my pathces over.
