I have reviewed orange-slice-0.0.9.tar.bz2 and the LGPL license has been
correctly applied, but there is a disagreement with this project registration
which says that your project is released under the GPL. Please register it
again, selecting LGPL as its license or changing the license on your source
code from the LGPL to the GPL.
Also, notice that there is no such thing as Debian/Linux. You might be
referring to "Debian GNU/Linux". The Debian project, as well as we here in
Savannah, have decided to dub "GNU/Linux" the complete operating system based
on the Linux kernel, to remind people that there is a whole Free Software
movement behind it, which dates back to the early 80's.
This may sound as a triviality, but it is a very important issue for us, so we
would appreciate it if you referred to the OS as GNU/Linux.
Regarding ports for proprietary operating systems, we do not have any
objections, as long as you keep the free port always as good as or better than
those other ports.
