Hmmm. Interesting points.
Is pointing to a web site where useful code might be
found the same as "contributing" the code? It strikes
that using the code would then require an action on
the part of the users. That action would take place
outside of any specific "permission to use" agreement.
What happens in that case, anyway? (Since I plan on
publishing an entire node library at some point, I
ask out of concern for who *else* in the world might
sue my ass into oblivion for being foolish enough to
simply make code available without a 10 page legal
agreement to protect me against people who rely on it
being bug free, and who count on it to do the accounting
for their fly-by-night operation...
I wonder, too, how someone can possibly be held liable
for any represenation of performance in the absence of
reciprocal performance by the second party? If there is
no reciprocation, there is no contract. If there is no
contract, there is no obligation. So if I put it out
there for free, there is no liablity on my part, no matter
who uses it. Right? Right?????
