1. Hello,

    This question is directed specifically to Mr. Whitehead. I have been studying your Clique code for general techniques and best practices. I would like to incorporate your AddonCore.lua file into my own project, in order to follow the framework you designed around it. From reading the LICENSE packaged with the add-on, I believe I could use AddonCore.lua in my project as long as I include this language:

    Before I use your code, however, I just wanted to check with you that my understanding matches your intent. Thanks.

    Oddly enough, that is not the correct license, which is my fault. The license of Clique is currently All right reserved, as indicated by the second line. Sorry for the confusion. As for AddonCore.lua, you're welcome to use it in your own addon. If you'd like me to release it with an explicit license, I could, but I'm happy for you to include it.. its very insubtatntial.

    Ok, thank you very much. Shall I just add a header to AddonCore.lua indicating its authorship and something like "Included by Permission of the Author"?

    If you'd like, but its general enough that it shouldn't matter.
