Default Re: Distributing Source Code publicly

Whatever you want - mostly.

Do any of your libraries use GPL? If so, you also have to use GPL because it is a terrible license that is "viral" - it infects other source code. So if you have to use it, do; if you don't have to, don't.

I prefer MPL because it has a lot of the same requirements as GPL on sharing modifications to code, but at a file level not a project level. So with MPL if someone takes your code they can mix it with other code in other files and libraries no problem, but if they modify your code they have to share the updates just to that one file.

And there are less restrictive licenses like MIT that just say "do what you want but don't blame me".
