This may be a dumb question but..I'd like to get some answers by you.If I publish something in GitHub,do I need any permission to cite a product, for example may it be a problem if I write "tested on Wildfly" or "this code requires Microsoft's. NET framework 3.5"?
Thanks in advance.

Claude,
I'm not a lawyer, but those are just product names. It's not like you are including the product itself. I don't see why you'd need to cite it there and not here.

That said, it would be nice to provide a link.

Thanks Jeanne for your opinion.. I agree with you, there should nothing wrong with simple citations like the ones I posted as examples - after all it is normal to specify which environment has been used or tested and / or what prerequisite software is needed. I will link software sites and /or documentation if needed.
