Hey so while ago got a reply from JetBrains and they were happy to give the diaspora* project an open source license for RubyMine. This license is for an unlimited amount of users, but we’ve been requested to follow good judgement on when to give out the license code. In no circumstance should it be made public, this is against the license conditions.
They said initially “core members” but I asked whether we can follow a slightly more relaxed policy and they replied;
We do not have strict guidelines regarding this - I believe each case should be treated personally and mostly according to the common sense. If the person is not a 1-day member and you believe they should be rewarded for their work please be sure to pass the key over.
Anyway, any opinions on how we should limit the license keys. Third merged pull request? We can use that as a little incentive to get contributors, do a blog post etc And of course we should promote FOSS tools too, not just advertise RubyMine, this has been talked already.
The license is valid for a year at a time and includes software upgrades.
