Thanks for the feedback Jon.

Wouldn't sourceforge be a better repository because it better enables project
management for future development. Maybe I should just do the simplest and
leave it to someone to take up the development side of things later.

Please bear with me but what does "...would not allow re-closing derivatives"
mean? Thanks in advance

the BSD license he mentioned would allow commercializing it, so it
would be less "viral", and in some respects, to some of us, better.
the GNU (1st or 2nd) would not allow re-closing derivatives, so would
be "safer". I would recommend the GPL-2, as I think the second version
is called. However, if he prefers BSD, that would be fine with me,
too. ;-)

As to where to put it.... hm. If it were GPL, I think source-forge
could take it, but why not just put it on UNNA's sites?
