It’s a while I see compiled dSploit versions pop up on Google Play Store, most of the times the actual changes are just a matter of icons, other times are merely compiled versions of one of the nightly releases.
Altough I can not ( and really don’t want to ) avoid this, I’d like to write a few lines about this kind of conduct and the ethics behind open source software.
As most of my personal projects, dSploit was released from the beginning under the GPL 3 license, this means that you can modify it at your own will, distribute it for free or even as a paid software and share it with your friends.
You are only asked to make your changes available under the same license and make references to the original authors of the software itself. That’s it, this is so simple.
Beyond the fact I find deeply unfair not putting even the smallest link to the original repository or some credits on the description of those compiled distributions, there are a few things anyone who wants to make such thing should be aware of before blindly cloning the repository and compiling the source code.
