Open source projects which lack licenses are quite annoying.

Please license your project, otherwise it's not FOSS and you shouldn't be calling it as such. Even small things like shell scripts and Vim themes require licenses to be FOSS.

License your code, please.

@opal I'm pretty sure that's just the assumed all rights reserved Berne convention license in sentence form.

Or, exactly why open source software requires licenses.

@skunksarebetter Yes, I often run into software which I would like to use and maybe implement into my own projects, and I find out that they do not have a license. I have been able to open an issue in some and get them to put a license on it though.
