I think you have two different questions here. In my opinion (IANAL) it is perfectly fine to create this "Quick Start" Joomla packages that include these extensions and keys for your own use, but it starts to get grey when you distribute them to others. The code of a Joomla extension itself must be GPL, and is therefore able to be distributed freely. The ...

I believe if it's GPL then you're allowed to do that, but I always check the developer's site to see if they have restrictions. Many of them only support 1 domain, others don't care. I tend to put JCE on everything I build (including the paid plugins). I also validate Rocket Theme's updater on sites that use a Rocket theme, but for other plugins, I tend to ...

It depends on your license, as I understand, if you have a developers license, yes, you can use these extensions in all sites you create for thirds.

So based on the fact there are current extensions approved I would say it's permitted. That said, i did a little reading on ...

If the external resource is just 1 file (even if it has a minified version with it), I would place it directly in the /assets/js directory. If the resource is a collection of 2 or more files, I would give it a subdirectory within the /assets/js directory. This is just personal opinion since in many years of joomla experience I've never come across definitive ...

If you want to distribute your module so that other people can use it, then you should keep flexibility in mind. In that case the best practice would be to put images, script and CSS style sheets in their own extension folder in Joomla's /media/mod_yourmodule/js/. The media folder is used for files that are served by components, modules and plugins and can ...
