This is just bizarre. Picking “MIT” because it sounds cool?

I cannot understand how the authors think this is valid.




The author actually picked the Apache license but changed it to MIT a year ago[1].

I imagine the author is trying to do open source well by using a license but doesn't fully understand the impact it has on the project. That's fair enough, and very common when people are new to open source.
