The code is public domain / free as in do whatever you want with it and do or don't give me credit. I appreciate and will include any good fixes and submissions, or you can spin off your own version because you're still pissed at me.
I am pissed because you said that the project will be open source, then you failed to reply to my inquiry via PM. Of course, it was also my fault that I didn't request that this project to be open source and viewable on a public repository in the first post on this subject. If that was put into place, I wouldn't worry about much of anything. There wouldn't be so much anger if I take simple precaution like this.
The only good reason right now is that we would spin off is that you are a bottleneck to the development process. If we have to wait for you to integrate all the changes that were happening, you are a liability.
Of course, there's still one thing that I like you to do, put your public domain declaration in COPYING in your source code. You could use something like http://sam.zoy.org/wtfpl/
to make sure that it is somewhat foolproof than your public domain declaration on the forum.
Once that is done, I'll simply take it and put it on a public repository somewhere. Development of open source projects like this should be done in public anyway.
That being said, communication IS VERY IMPORTANT. Failing to reply to PM when you logged on to the forum inspire a serious lack of confidence.
