When I browse the source for either VIP or the Wiki I do not see any
explicit licensing for these applications. I understand that PicoLisp is
licensed under the MIT license. However, I do not know that it is
explicit that these applications are part of the PicoLisp language.
I think it would be good if applications such as these had their own
explicit license. This way they can be separated from the distribution
if desired. Developed independently from the distribution. And this
question will hopefully no longer be asked.
I know Alexander has his own methodology for PicoLisp core development.
I struggled to find where that is described in the threads relating to
However, I think it would be nice if apps like these which are distinct
from core PicoLisp could be placed on GitHub or some community
accessible and manageable source code management site. This would make
the community involvement on development of apps like these more
possible or encouraged.
I am not suggesting any regarding PicoLisp core. That has been
discussed. PicoLisp isn't the only language with a model as such. Lua
also has core development model that is tight with the core devs. And
the released software is completely open source.
Back on topic. Is the license for the Wiki app and for VIP also MIT?
Thanks for your time.
