What does making a project public entail exactly? Can they edit anything?

URL of experiment: Pavlovia

Description of the problem: I want to make my project public after having collected data, but I want to know whether this means people can somehow mess with the code or files. Do I need to worry about this? Is public read only access or can they edit? I’m assuming/hoping it should be read only but I’m not sure how co-developing or editing an experiment would work then, and am a bit confused by all the options in the permissions tab.

Public means they can make their own copy and view your CSV data (not database data). They can’t edit your copy of your code.

When I’m working on someone else’s experiment I ask to me added as a developer and for the master branch to Ben unprotected (so developers can edit it).
