advice about distributing the code

I’ve been saying that I was going to distribute Twig open-source, which is true.  Any yet, there are no pointers to the code.  Why is that?  It’s because I haven’t had a chance to figure out some of the mechanics of distributing the code.  In particular, I haven’t figured out:

  • Which of the many open-source licenses to use (my inclination is to make it available for commercial use, since anyone trying to use it in a commercial product would likely want to reimplement it in C++ anyway).
  • Where to put the code.  The obvious possibilities are something like source forge, my own SVN server, or just a zip file on a web site that I periodically update.
  • Should I use a bugzilla, wiki, etc.

It looks at the moment like that default plan will be to use LGLP and my own SVN server.  But advice on any of these issues is welcome.  In the mean time, I am distributing the code informally; just drop me an email.
