I use an MIT licensed package to receive messages in a certain protocol. If I want to use a part of this package to build a new one (also MIT) which sends messages in that protocol (so it's 80% diff. from the original one, it just shares the translations part) do I still need to fork it and then delete most of it?
including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify,
I assumed that MIT allows you to do anything with the code (and all files included) but I stumbled over this thread: What if somebody removed my name from MIT license
What's the correct way of doing this, adding my name to the MIT and keeping the other name? Or do I need to add the license to the files I used from the original repo?
