I’m wondering what the licensing is for the mobile and web app? I can’t seem to find any reference to a licence in the source and I may be making some changes (based on bespoke additional hardware) which should be fine to share if they are of interest to other. I’m also wondering what if any limitations there are on distributing modified apps based on OpenSprinkler assuming they don’t re-use the OpenSprinkler name directly (but of course credit it)?
The open source nature of this project is primarily to facilitate the ability for users to contribute to the project or use modified copies for their own use. However, rebranding the app and redistributing it is not an accepted use case.
Simply putting the source code on github does not make something open source; it has to actually be licensed under an open source license, which most people interpret as meaning a license that has been accepted by the Open Source Initiative.
I went ahead and officially addressed this by adding the AGPL v3 license to the application. I chose the Affero GPL as the code can be modified to run as a service and this ensures modifications are published.
