Hey now! That's not what I said!
I said that one day we will be gone, and we do have to have a plan for what happens to our stuff after we are. You don't have to do what I do, but it is good practice to have some plan in place. We've lost a couple of great people, whose loss will really be felt, just in the last couple of weeks. I have heart disease. I almost died a couple of times already!
What your plan is, and who you share it with, is none of my business. I'm choosing to be public about my plans, because for me dying is a realistic prospect!
PS: If I die, all my work becomes public domain immediately. Otherwise, when released, it'll have either a 5-year or 10-year open source no-commercial-use license, and then after that period it will be released into the public domain. That restriction is just to give us the opportunity to recover our development costs.
