I have to admit I don't understand anything about open source licenses

@angristan I believe Apache permits you to keep your changes private, but AGPL requires you to make your changes public (although it allows you to link to it from code that will be kept private)

If you already know this much then I'm not sure how helpful I can be 😋

Apache, MIT, BSD licenses : you can edit the code without the need to publish the modifications (or publish it under the same license)
AGPL, GPL : you have to publish your modifications under the same license used by the original project.

AGPL is designed for Internet services and softwares, GPL for softwares only

@angristan the only one I’ve ever been able to understand is MIT. I’ve tried to read the others, even their summaries, they’re just too confusing.
