I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

First, we set up a system of queue so as to deal with our huge current
pending projects list. I now started reviewing your project, and your
replies will be considered before other projects submitted after
yours. I may however ask you to resubmit the project if I feel the
required changes will take too long (ie more than one week).

Before releasing your project under the LGPL, please place copyright
notices and permission to copy statements at the beginning of every
file of source code (even short ones).

For further instructions, go to 

Please also remove or rewrite the "Copyright" section in README.TXT:

To avoid any legal issue, it would be good to present these as
comments, not legal text.

Moreover, as stated above, we feel each file should carry a copyright
and license notice, that is clearer. The license notice comes with a
non-warranty statement, and the LGPL contains the full non-warranty
text. So the text is not needed.

If you are willing to make the changes mentioned above, please provide
us with an URL to an updated tarball of your project.  Upon review, we
will reconsider your project for inclusion in Savannah.
