I'm developing in my spare time a game like Minecraft. In fact, it isn't "like Minecraft", because I'm trying to make it a close as possible copy of it (meant as exercise for myself at the age of 16 and simply because of it is fun to me). Of course, I'm not copying the code using the Minecraft Coder Pack (MCP). I started the game from scratch in Java using OpenGL.
So, my question is: am I allowed to put my source code online on a public source code versioning host like GitHub, Google Code, et cetera (which makes my code open source, because I don't want to pay to use a private host)? Of course, I don't want to sell the game, because the game is from Notch.
A detail which might be important is that I'm using a custom texture pack (so, not the one that is shipped with the real Minecraft).
If it is allowed, are there any rules? I took a look to this page, but it seems that he doesn't say anything about this: http://www.minecraft.net/terms
Edit: There is the game called Terasology (started under the name Blockmania) from Begla. That is a nice project, but it is not meant to be as close as possible to Minecraft. That project is open source.
