    @imshravan Good license. Personally I won't work on GPL licensed projects.

    I am collecting content and learning resources.

    I have added the content from my stack. I am waiting for other stacks as well.. so that other people can freely use it..

    @imshravan You should read up on how open source projects achieve a critical mass. It takes quite a bit of work to get a project to the point where people will contribute. People are not looking for things to do without some personal interest. It is how people are.

    I think this article may touch on this a bit:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    I am sure there are articles on how to successfully run an open source project.

    Maybe everyone is modifying and distributing your code as closed source because you chose MIT license and that's why you don't get collaboration 😎

    @Demolishun Why not GPL? Personally I prefer MIT, but why GPL stops you from contributing?

    How to choose the correct FOSS license for your project:

    Do you want to be able to improve the project by merging in all the improvements done by other people?
    NO -> MIT license

    Can your project be run productively without distributing it to a customer?
    NO -> GPL
    YES -> AGPL
