I try to follow those rules as much as possible.
The license I would like to use is GMGPL, which is a GPL plus GNAT 
It's quite equivalent to LGPL, but takes into account instantiation of 
generic units.
At this time I don't use any generic unit and I could use LGPL. But I've 
imagined some possible usage of generics.

I don't have any personal site yet (I expect to have one soon).
I can send code as an attachment or wait to have my site.
