No link to a repository? So while the game will be "open source" (which license?), the development is still behind closed doors?

And what about the artwork, sound, etc.? Under which license(s) will they fall?

Open source is a licensing model, not development model. You can release under an open source license but you don't have to take a 'bazaar' (or bottom-up) approach to development, you can take a 'cathedral' approach which is less common nowadays but still valid.

Open source is just the license you release under, the way you develop it is another story entirely.

*sigh* This is exactly why I abhor the term "open source" in favour of the proper term "free software". Or maybe "FLOSS", if you have to.
Tim O'Reilly, Eric S. Raymond (even before he went completely nuts) and their ilk did much harm to the community with their ********.

Developing closed and then doing a dump is just bad for everyone. People can't learn from the development process, can't spot problems, can't spontaniously help, nothing. And all too often, projects die without ever having seen a release (for various reasons), the work and time wasted.
I really wonder why this behaviour is especially prevelant in modding communities. People
- don't release
- vanish without trace
- won't release sources for modding tools (and get pissy yelling about "their intellectual property" when asked about sources, wtf)
etc.. It's sad, really.

we are making a tech demo with a single map and a very clean base of qc, is a short storie different of dead morning, we are using gpl tools to make the game (fteqcc, quark, audacity, GIMP, etc.) we will release the code from the engine and the qc everything under gpl 2, aniway the depelovment is slow because we have busy lives and we are only two members. We need a modeler, a composer etc. but we do not call members if we do not have a tech demo released.

In either case, I do look forward to Dead Morning. I only wish development would be more public. Not just on this project, but generally.

sorry but we doesn´t have the time or work structure for a repository. the main problem is my native language, i do not speak english, any team member speaks english fluidly. I am the programmer and my qc code doesn´t have comments , i need clean it and add the comments but i can not to add comments and document everything in english because i can not write english, these work is imposible for me. You can see the qc code from xonotic and the repository, they are a very big comunity for a multiplayer game. We are just two guys wint jobs, university and school. The Xonotic qc is very complex and great (i only understand the 40% from the code). anybody will learn anything new reading the code from dead morning, because we are based in a very clean qc 1.01 from quake adding new stuff. Qc is easy but you need time to learn it, but if you know quake and xonotic code dead morning code will be very simple for you, if you do not know anything about qc dead morning is a bad base to start. I suggest read qc 1.01 from quake and xonotic code, after you can learn about dead morning.

hello guest, we do not use repository, the development is closed doors because we are making the game using dropbox, and we only will release the game in the version 1.0. The code will be under licensed with GPL 2, and the art is in GPL 2 also, but the some music is under CC-BY (we do not have a composer yet).
