Lemmy is licensed under the AGPLv3. I don’t want to rely solely on my own legal interpretation of the license, so I’m wondering if anyone has any explicit knowledge on the matter.

As an aside, am I correct in assuming that, if someone does make changes to the source code, they must host, and link to it?

EDIT (2023-09-27T22:22Z): I am just now seeing that at the bottom of a Lemmy instance’s site, there is a link that says “Code”. It appears that this is handled automatically.

    If you remove that link, wouldn’t you therefore have modified the code?

    Philosophy aside, I mean, who cares about an extra outbound link? Lemmy is a social link aggregator whose entire purpose is to have outbound links. That one link isn’t going to shift the needle on your instance’s SEO…
