OK. This already has been somewhat covered in Should we be transparent when recommending our own software? and What are the rules for self-answering your question?, but there's a possible exception that was not quite covered. I think it's OK to do what I want, but every site has its own culture so I thought I'd ask.
I want to do this:
- Ask a question for a software library that I can't seem to find
- Wait a few days for answers and...
- ...if a solution is proposed that fits my needs and is quality, great!
- ...if not, build the library that I need and post on SR.
Of course, I would disclose that I wrote that library. In addition, it would be 100% open source and I wouldn't profit at all from this. Is there anything I else I would need to do for this to be OK, or is this considered rude in general?
