1. i have not learned yet how to use gitHub :P
2. the real problem is, i have no license. every mod in minetest_game has it's own license, but since i didn't just copy but completely re-structured it, i have no save way to backtrack every code to it's original license.
i guess there is some more general license that covers all of minetest_game, but i have yet to find it...

i had some trouble to configure the glacier biome, but now i have it right.
still adjusting the beach/height for the other biomes.
when it's done i will add 2 new blocks: mossy earth-cobble and magma block.

that is because... um...
*runs away*


Edit:

ok, i didn't finish everything i wanted to finish, but i made the biome definitions and most of the liquid interactions.
- lava-cooling is slightly slowed down
- ice-melting happens at the same speed
- lava can melt snow blocks and ice into river water sources and makes a splashing sound
- snow blocks can freeze water sources and make a cracking sound (fun to watch)
- grass spreading is slightly accelerated
- moss growth has the same speed as grass spread
- dirt with mossy grass also triggers moss growth

to do:
- make lava burn sands to stones
- add mossy dirt-cobble
- add magma block with liquid interaction
- add recipes for grinding stones to sands

The Fox liked the grass and spent many days watching it spread all over the world.
but eventually the grass had covered every place on the surface and started to grow into dark caves, in rivers and lakes and even the ocean.
The grass was too strong and ruled over everything else in the world.
"It was not supposed to be like this, I must stop this..."
And so the Fox gave the grass weakness. From now on it would only grow in the sunlight and perish in dark places.

The next day, the Fox found a volcano and was shocked how the lava was all cuddly and cosy.
Fire and water can not be friends like that, he had to separate the elements somehow...
So the Fox spoke to the lava:
"Hey, listen... The grass said that your mother is *@#$%€$&^×₩¥€!!!#..."
The lava got furious and mad. It heated up so much that the earth melted and whenever it got near any grass or moss, it burned it to ashes along with everything else.
To prevent the lava from emerging to the surface and destroying his world, he also spoke to the water:
"Psst... you didn't hear this from me, but... lava-senpai loves someone else. It's burning hot with passion, but it's not too late, yet. If you embrace it and cool it down until it's solid, it will forget about the other and be only yours again ;)"
The water got excited and seas waved, faintly whispering "senpai... senpai..."
From this day on, whenever water and lava came together, the water would turn the lava into solid obsidian while whispering "you should look only at me, senpai".

(and in the background you can see the missing desert :P )

the liquid interaction has been completed for all existing nodes =(^.^)=
in addition to obsidian/stone generation, there is water freezing and ice melting.
obsidian gets heated to magma (reverted by lavacooling), moss burns off and sand is smelted back to stone.

sorry, not yet.
was on vacation and now the new semester begins :P
(i did some minor tweaks to the textures, to make sure that they were all created with the same methods.)

but i like it when you ask, because it stops me from being too lazy :)
besides the recipes, i will also add stairs for the existing blocks, then learn about trees.

tiny update:

i added craft recipes to grind harder materials into their softer counterparts.
together with the lava functions it is now possible to create all earthen materials from each other.
more recipes will be added when new materials (like clay) are introduced later ;)

essential building materials shouldn't be rare and strictly limited, so everything in the game will be renewable in some or another way =(^.^)=

the next step will introduce stairs, pillars and walls ;)

edit:
walls are done for mossy and non-mossy dirt- and rockstone.
since they have a unique texture from the minecraft texture pack, i changed the wall model.
other wall types will probably not get unique textures :P
