Almost certainly! If your users can read your code they can: 1- make suggestions for improvement of your code or for new features 2- learn from you how to program in Mathematica and/or how to do something in your specific field/application 3- be inspired by your code and develop it further without you making much extra effort. By the way, what is your package all about?
