whereas an implicit MIT license would seem to be the community preference for new code presented here (if possible).
- What is the rationale for CC-ANS?
- Should we make a habit of posting code in Github gists or the like (where licensing is flexible) and just quoting or linking here? (That’s awkward, but if it’s what it takes to appease the legal daemons, …)
- If so, what is the minimal addition to such a gist that provides an MIT license?
- Should readers feel encouraged to (politely) ask posters of useful code to re-license their own work elsewhere?
