Questions tagged [open-source]

Open source software is software distributed under an open source license. Such a license specifically allows anyone to copy, modify, extend and redistribute the source code without paying royalties or fees to the original authors. Only use this tag if your question relates to these issues in some way; it shouldn't be simply "this question is for an open source project."
