I’m building an Atom plugin and I have been thinking lately about some questions related to the license. I’ve learned a lot with some plugins that were already uploaded as Atom packages. In some cases, some code of them have been used, and in others, I’ve been extremely inspired.
I would like to cite the authors and make very clear that I used their work, as a way to thank them, but I’m not sure about the best way to do it.
I understand that I need to include the license in the root folder of the plugin.
- Is this the place to add the copyright notice of the other authors specifying which file was made from their code?
- Is it a good place to indicate that I’ve been based on other’s people ideas and code specifying those?
- Any example available that shows a license composed by more than one authors?
- Would you include again some notice inside the files?
Obviously, I’m planning to write more information inside readme.md, but I’m interested on how I should make this in the license.
Thanks a lot for your help,
