Hi Steffen Bauc:
I reviewed your Distributed Library Project (dlp), and there's some
licenses problems.
The Copyright Notices and License Notices are not in good conditions,
please check the GPL-Howto about how to use the GPL license:

The INSTALL file is a documentation file so, would you be accord in
put it under the GNU FDL? you can check the license and how to use in
this URL:
In images/ directory you have some GIF image, please remove theses GIF
image files from your project and replace them with an other format
(such as PNG or JPEG).
Because of the patents (Unisys and IBM) covering the LZW compression
algorithm which are used when making GIF files, it's impossible to
have free software to generate proper GIFs.  These patents also apply
to the compress program.
For more information, see

About the site at we would like to see it closed since
we do not allow mirroring; until the SourceForge support close it
please modify the project description and web page to point to the
Savannah as the new home.
