This repo seems to be lacking a free license. I suggest AGPLv3+.

The Affero GPL has all the goodies of the GPL (ensuring no one can privatize your work), as well as closing the SaaSS loophole: basically if someone turns your engine into an online app (believe me, it's possible nowadays), they will need to redistribute the source as well.

Well, I'm more for a true open license world, so my vote would go to a BSD or MIT license.

Well, at the end of the day, any free software license is better than none :)

What's the issue exactly and how does GPLv3 not solve it?

I too am for an open license.

@C0rn3j The issue is that the author should choose a license :) He/she have to choose the GNU AGPL v3+ / GNU GPLv3+ to be a master of copyleft, or the MIT/BSD to be a "WTFPL-like" fan.

I was just wondering why you're pushing for AGPLv3 as opposed to GPLv3.

@C0rn3j ("You" in the sense of I?) See the GNU AGPL as suitable for a copyleft server software. The GNU GPL is suitable for a copyleft software. The MIT/BSD/WTFPL/Apache are suitable for don't care software.

@valerio-bozzolan Ah, I've mistaken you for @pizzamaker there. Thanks for explaining the difference, I also found a gnu.org article about it here for those who care.
