How to ensure it remains free


GPL the whole thing - if you don't want your code to be free, GPL just your
database.

For those that don't know what the GPL is, it is the GNU General Public
License - a copyleft, instead of a copyright.

http://www.fsf.org/copyleft/gpl.html

"When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our
General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom
to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you
wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you
can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that
you know you can do these things."

Just a thought....
