i have searched the archive, and something similar has been asked
before, but i did not find a solution... (and probably 'the best
licence' is not the same for everyone)
i want to:

-encourage (re)using and building upon my patches and sharing the results.

-discourage plagiarism

-not lock anyone (especially myself ;)) out from using
my patches in a commercial and closed 'environment' (like
a game on steam or an android/ios-app)

the cc-by-sa which i use all the time for music and pictures
seems to be appropriate, but i understand that it is not
intended for code.

gpl? would be great not to have to think about when including other work
released under gpl. but can i make exceptions when it becomes
necessary (app-store...)?


i am quite stuck. but i think i should (finally) put a proper
licence on my released patches...
