"Linux" is just a kernel of a more complex system that we like to refer
to as GNU/Linux, to emphasize the ideals of the Free Software movement.
Would you mind changing references to Linux as an OS to GNU/Linux?
For more information, see http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html.
Please forward the code to me by email (address@hidden).
We wish to review your source code, even if it is not functional, to
catch potential legal issues early.
For example, to release your program properly under the GPL you must
include a copyright notice and permission-to-copy statements at
the beginning of every file of source code. This is explained in
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html. Our review would help catch
potential omissions such as these.
Also, note that when your project is approved, it will be approved as
non-GNU. To be accepted as a GNU project, the GNU evaluation team has
to approve your project.
