I'm trying to make a dual-license source-available software that allows copying of the software for the sole purpose of contributing to the original software, with the exception of the copyright holders, who are 5 or so people. I planned on doing that by modifying a copyleft license, stating that copies must be distributed with a very restrictive license that doesn't allow usage or distribution. I chose to use the AGPL for this, but it said in the preamble that people may not modify it. I have three questions:
How come MongoDB made the SSPL license, which is a modified version of the GPLv3?
Can I do what MongoDB did to make my own license based on the (A)GPL?
Is there a better license/license-combination for the purpose I listed above?
