Hi Satya

In terms of using the code on your website - it is like Jose said. As long
as adhere to the license you are free to do with the code as you please!

I do however urge you to tell us a bit more about fossacademy? P2PU is
about community, not some software or a platform, and we would like to help
you as much as we can :)

We're are currently talking with some people from flossmanuals.net about
starting a "School of Free Software". Maybe that aligns with what you are
trying to do? As far as I understand it will focus on using floss software.
Do you want to focus more on the licensing part?

Let us know if you need any help!
