The source files do not have appropriate notices. In order to release
your project properly and unambiguously under the LGPL, please place
copyright notices and permission-to-copy statements at the beginning of
every file of source code.

In addition, if you haven't already, please include a copy of the plain
text version of the LGPL, available from, into a file named "COPYING".

For more information, see
This page contains information for LGPL too.

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, see

Also, the files say that the copyright holders are you and FSF. Have you
done paperwork with FSF?

Please addresse these issues and send me the tarball with the changes
and I will approve your project.
