nothing to discuss about. You just make your php-scripts available to the public. No ?

Well, I would say you're probably thinking along the lines of distribution under GPL. This does 2 things, 1 it makes sure that you are recognized as the owner of the code, and two it requires that any modifications / improvements to the code be made avialable.
