Hi Pabs,

Apologize for my big mistake, I deleted your project thinking that it

would be to ask each and every copyright holder, and that may be very

We can explain the issue in more detail if you wish.  If you have
concerns about "GNU GPL v2 or later", we'd be happy to address them too.

Will you resubmit your project on Savannah considering the issue above?
