My brain will soon be 70 years old. It's well past its "best before" date. It's time to think about the future of Templot.
I have decided to release a cut-down version of Templot as open source, provisionally called OpenTemplot.
It has to be cut-down, because the full version of Templot (Templot2) contains some licensed code which is not my copyright and can't be open-sourced (the PDF export, for example).
The two programs Templot2 and OpenTemplot will exist alongside one another until I sink slowly in the west. After which OpenTemplot will live on for as long as others want to support it. I have created a hosting account on Sourceforge in readiness, but there is nothing there yet: https://sourceforge....ts/opentemplot/
I'm planning to license the code under the GNU/GPL licence: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html
There are dozens of open source licences available, so I would welcome some advice from software professionals on whether this is the best one to choose in the context of the model railway hobby. Thanks.
