I'm fine with the content of any project to be cloned to be modified for specific purpose, but it should be obvious on the page of each project that this is a cloned repository from (original repository) with links to the eventual original page, and who made the program.
I'm aligned, but i'm not the owner and in my project, all software used is well attributed.
Anyway, this has to be handled by who -as the repositery is a collective one - , in your opinion ?
The lame answer would be "The CEO" because after all it's branded like that on the top of the repository:
More realistically, there are 50 repositories in it, so a minimum of organization would help. It's not just attribution, it's just that it's mess of projects, many having zero description of what they are.
At a minimum what I'd like is to have each of these 50 project at least have a one liner on the front page saying what it is (simply because that makes it easier for everybody), some are already doing it.
- Castoric -> "Ray Casting System for Oric Computers"
- BattleZone4Oric -> "BattleZone Clone For Oric"
- OricExplorer -> "Oric Explorer is a .Net GUI application running on Windows, macOS and Linux for exploring ..."
Bad ones without any description:
- glOric, file, gateway-ip, drwho, mym, ...
Empty repositories without anything in them:
- deltapack, hrs2txt, badapple, spo256, bubble, vidplay, sdl, ulapaint, xpaint, destrike, sedsd, ripped, dizzy, soft, unpack
Regarding attribution, it seems to me that "jede" is the number one culprit, mostly because he imported a massive number of projects for Orix, and none of the ones I looked at has any attribution or explanation of where it comes from (some are probably even his own projects, but we don't know):
<- Collective work
<- Me + all the 35 other people credited on the original page
I'm going to fork this post so we stop polluting Jibé's raycasting post
