Giving away my code
Message ID:

Some of you have probably come across my post on monks, but I ask here
with a bit more detail.

My project is a suite for Internet Service Provider management. The core
engine is topped off with a web gui interface. This project contains
about 7,800 lines of code, POD and unit tests.

The HTML/email templates are separate, but I do intend to integrate them
into the core of the project.

There are also a few other personal packages which I've written that I
tap into, but they are better left separate ( RadiusMgmt, EmailMgmt
etc). These will be re-written, because what I know now, I didn't know then.

The company that employs me is very small, and although I don't believe
there will ever be a problem with giving my code away, I want to take
advantage of the fact that I have never signed anything to say I
``can't'' give it away. I'm at a stage where some of our staff is
testing, so before the powers-that-be decide that this is company code:

What is the quickest and easiest way to ensure my code is truly licensed
as public domain, if I don't feel that the code is quite CPAN worthy?

Do I put it somewhere with a license in it? Can I simply share it with
someone else, with a license in it?
