What about IRC bots?

Put it in /msg bot help or similar.

What about twitter utilities?

Depending on what kind of twitter utility, either put the link in the bio or put it into the response to a help comman.

What about RSS?

XML comment.

What about a programmable light switch?

You don't have to offer the source code to anyone who physically uses the switch, AGPL only covers interactions via a computer network.

One could argue that not all of these are really prominent, but then again, the GPL itself demands a prominent copyright notice. And even in the case of bash, the most prominent copyright notice is hidden behind the --version switch.

Most hardened Free Software advocates consider Affero to be non-free. It introduces usage restrictions, which go against Freedom 0 ("the right to use the software for any purpose").

That depends on what you call the user: In a way, it's who runs the server that a cloud application runs on. But for me, the actual user is the person who actually uses the software.

It also prevents most code reuse: you can't take a part and put it inside your program if it interacts with users in a way that doesn't provide means of file transfers.

Does the AGPL require a way to download the source code from within the software? I would have assumed that presenting a notice like "This is AGPL software, the source is at http://example.com/foo-source" would be perfectly fine.
