I am interested into packaging your data structure for opam.
But I'd have to work on the code.
If you want to add a license, I would recommend LGPL with linking exception, as is the norm
for ocaml libraries.

I'll add whatever license you feel is best. LGPL with linking is the norm? That's interesting, MIT and Apache are the norm in the field I work in, but I haven't followed OCaml for a while.

Thanks for your interest!

MIT and Apache 2 are both common in the OCaml world as well, FWIW.

I even like BSD. But that's your code so you choose. The default is public domain if you don't specify.

My understanding is that the default is definitely not public domain, but rather no license - no one else has rights to use the code under any conditions.

Also note the relatively new but already popular ISC license. It's basically MIT/BSD but with a simpler text. Used a lot in the mirage project.

If many people are interested by this code, they might be interested by this one too: https://github.com/UnixJunkie/vantage_point_tree_from_codepad. I found it on the web some time ago, but now it's not online anymore. Is it public domain also? Does someone known the original author?
