Additional instructions are available from

The GPL FAQ explains why these procedures must be followed.  To learn
why a copy of the GPL must be included with every copy of the code,
for example, go to

If you are willing to make the changes mentioned above, please provide

ok, I understand the difference between GNU and GPL,
VoXpopuli, is released under the GPL.
You can see it in the piece of source code (main classes) at this adress
It's difficult to show you piece of code because for the moment I work
on a local web server.

I hope this .zip archive answer at your questions!
if it's not the case, send me another mail :-)

thank you for your consideration,
