Is it allowed to submit a modified version of GP in this forum?

Hi, I am working on several improvements on GP. So I thought about publishing my own version (the lib folder) on this forum soon.
Is it allowed to do that?

Oh hehe I was gonna ask the same thing, didn't realize you already did the same modifications, great minds think alike ;P

I thought you were helping develop this project now, though, or are you just helping around?

Nice

Currently I only help around where I can. I am only moderator on this forum but not a official developer. I would like to be.

Aw maybe John will make you a developer when the project develops

And does GP even have a license currently?

Maybe.

I think there should be a licence.txt in the runtime folder. I'll take a look on it later.

Reading it, it seems as if you are able to modify it all you want, as long as you still provide the license and notices. So I guess it is allowed but you might have to wait until John Maloney voices his opinion on the matter before you do anything...

My view on this.

The GP project is still underdevelopment - it is not a finished product by any means so I would not publish an amended version at this time.

I am sure that it is allowed to publish your improved GP classes (the lib folder) because the part of GP which was written in GP is open to read for everyone. The interpreter / VM is closed source, so I am sure that it is not posible to change anything at this layer.
