The CEDICT license states:
Permission is granted to make and distribute verbatim copies of these
files provided this copyright notice and permission notice is
distributed with all copies. Any distribution of the files must take
place without a financial return, except a charge to cover the cost
of the distribution medium.
Due to the financial clause, this license is non GPL compatible.
Savannah can't host GPL incompatible software.
Will you host this vocabulary source on Savannah? If you point the
user to the website of the list then it is ok. This because we allow
To release your project under the GPL, you should put
copyright notices and copying permission statements
at the beginning of every source-code file, and
include a copy of the plain text version of the GPL
Put it in a file named COPYING.
Please follow the advice of http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html.
The GPL FAQ explain the reason behind these recommendations. For
example, there is an entry explaining why the GPL requires including a
copy of the GPL with every copy of the program:
Also note that now your COPYING file is a symlink...
If you still want to host your project on Savannah then put an updated
tarball online with the correct copyright statements so I can check it
out, if it is ok I will approve your project.
