However using my resume as an example I think those burdens would be a good thing as it allows me to know who is trying to use my resume.

Thing of the "licensed" source of your resume as a template for other resumes.

As long as you put you CV in public, it is *visible* to everybody (which is the point of having your CV online) and putting a license to its *source* allows people to use it for their resumes (within what you grant them in the license).

As Greg correctly stated, using a license does *not* weaken your copyright. NEVER EVER.

Greg, thank you for the clarifications, and I apologize for my poor choice of words.

I personally think that what Drew is doing is actually increasing user freedom.

sr.ht, the service, is designed to help free and open source software, by clarifying the rules to reach that, Drew helps users make choices that are right for them.

Is there something you would like subscribers and non subscribers alike to do to help (even considering that we'll all be hit by covid-19 in a way or another...)

In the perspective of free software, the difference between user and developer is a difference of degree, not a difference of essence, not only because users do what they can to help, but also because developing is one of the multiple possible ways to use the software.

Good Morning Lez (8:20 am here)

Thank you so much for the remarks on the RSS feed.

It looks like the thing validates properly *and* follows the recommendations for interoperability now.

I hesitate to add the "valid RSS" image on the site since I (for now) manually generate the xml feed, but I'll do my best to automate that in the coming days.

Thanks again. Pretty good start for a cold winter day :)
