I am wondering how hard it might be for anyone to launch a new open source project? Would they need to decide which existing licenswe they would adhere to ahead of time?
Do the agreements need to be in place before any work can start by anyone?
I am interested in open source as a way to build big projects. But I can also see how things could bog down, especially if there were contractual problems early on in the game.
I'd be happy to hear about your experiences and your impressions of open source as a way to do really cool things and get the money people out of the decisions.
