Is that where the shoe hurts?
OK, so how does it work to add a license? Do you
just type/yank it as a comment first thing in
the source file?
I have by now ~116 Elisp files!  A couple of
them should probably be thrown away as they are
either unaware-of duplicates of what is already
in Emacs, or just plain bad ideas. And many are
just configs with no originality/creativity to
them - well, not in terms of the code anyway :)
So it'll be a smaller number of files, for
sure. Still, surely I don't have to put
I license block in every single one of them?
Is is enough with a LICENSE file in the
As for me, the license might as well be "Here is
a bunch of code, do whatever you want with it,
but the author would very much appreciate
comments (mails) on how to improve it or just
a note if you found it useful."
And speaking of files, anyone has a good idea
where to dump all this Elisp? I don't know how
long the university will allow my student (ha!)
home page to remain untouched on their SunOS!
BTW this is a general "problem" for me, I also
have probably as much zsh, some other code
[stats from 2015: 3], my home page...
Where do you guys put all your stuff?
