Would you please use Gitorious instead of Github?
Ah, yes, good call, LRN.

I planned to share my project (licence GPL like Gnunet), can I use
the name GnunetWebUI ?
I doubt that GNUnet name is registered (Grothoff, is it registered?),
so it's unlikely that anyone has the proper legal rights to stop you.
We did not register GNUnet. If there was a concern, I suspect the name that should be registered is "GNU", which would then cover GNUnet indirectly. But anyway, I didn't think he was asking a 'legal' question, but rather politely asking if we would mind ;-).

Or, for that matter, any reason to do so.
As for the license, you might consider AGPL instead of GPL for a web
UI. If you want to make it shareable (i.e. not just use it as
alternative for command line, but also allow other people to use it,
people who normally have absolutely no access to the machine GNUnet
node is running on). If it's not shareable, GPL would work just as well).

There's also a version of GNUnet written in Java (to work in a
browser). amatus (address@hidden) worked on it, you'd have
to ask him for details and its status. Not sure if it's relevant to a
Web UI or not (probably not, since you've mentioned gnunet-java, which
is a separate project).
AFAIK Amatus wants to run all of GNUnet in the browser, whereas the proposal here is to run the 'daemons' on the server and only the GUI in the browser. So this is somewhat complimentary. Also, I seriously doubt that amatus has a reasonable shot at making it work, whereas doing only a GUI is --- while less ambitious --- more realistic.

Nevertheless, talking with amatus might still be a good idea.

Happy hacking!
