Hello, could you clarify this requirement?

Use a permissive license for your code (ex: MIT, Apache-2)

do we have to share the code with the reviewers? Will it be made public to a general community?

I’d like to participate, but the project will grow into a business that won’t be open source. How can I protect the IP and still participate?

Hi Roman! We have updated this item in the announcement post to be more license specific. I hope this helps!

Would the "Commons Clause" license fit? That's acceptable also:

Thanks Chris and Gracie, yeah it is helpful and I think the Commons Clause will do.
