Simon: please apologise to your girlfriend on our behalf.
One way to do it would be for Simon to add a trivial app there, and you could tip him for that...(Tip jar is already on PiStore I believe, just need connecting to Simon!)Andybp wrote:This is one of those developments where I suspect many are eagerly awaiting the final output. Now, I think that there should be some mechanism, within the pi store, to allow a tip jar to be made. These guys have spent months developing this, it will offer benefits to millions of pi users, and yet bizarrely there's no way to tip them. I know it's open source, but I would gladly buy simon and others a pint. Liz, can something be done here?
These sites all contain Pi related binary files:teh_orph wrote:Finally: hosting. Can I just stick zip files up on Github for people to download? Will they (Github) mind?
You can wget the 'raw' URL of the file, e.g. https://raw.github.com/raspberrypi/firm ... YING.linuxdom wrote:Not sure if you can wget individual files from github, but you can "git clone" to get them, or download a zip of complete repo (which you can organise to just be the files required).
I think that you use the same license as the project you modified. Not entirely sure though.teh_orph wrote:Hi there,
does anyone know what license I need to release my code under? I'm terrible at these things! There is no license information in the source code I'm building (in a readme or otherwise), and searching on the x.org wiki for 'license' gives nothing. However wikipedia says that Xorg itself is licensed under the "X11 license". This takes me to "MIT license" which tells of the ambiguities between these different licenses.
I have made some modifications to Xorg itself, and used the fbdev driver as a base. There's not much left of that driver in there though...
What do I do?
EDIT: I'm being blind, I've found the existing license files. So - do I have to use the same license?
We have a winner! Thanks again for your help and cheers for losing some sleep time for thisyaggi wrote:For the record, Simon is not only a saint, but he is in fact a wizard.
