Follow-up Comment #1:

I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

At first, "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

At second, does your project has got any dependence? Any included source code
somewhere or some linked parts?

At third, you should include this short license on top of every file instead
of point the reader to an URI.

At fourth, your files lack copyright information. For more information have a
look at

At fifth, is it necessary to include in your zip-ball the exe files? For a
GNU/Linux (e.g.) user that's not necessary. And if you would like to
distribute binary stuff in your zip-ball,too, you should write its
license+copyright into a README file.

At sixth, we only host projects that can run on a free operating system (such
as GNU/Linux).

We have adopted this policy because now that completely free operating
systems exist, we do not want to encourage users of those systems to start
using proprietary operating systems so that they can use your program.

If you are willing to maintain a version for free operating systems, which
work as well as or better than other ports, you can then provide versions for
non-free systems as well.
The idea is that at no point should only-free users be at a disadvantage
compared to users of proprietary software.

Your project should always work equally well in free systems as in any other
version you provide; if you have some modules for non-free systems, you can
delay their release until you have released the free operating system

If you accept this commitment then please let us know.
Thank you for your understanding.

Please provide us with an updated zip-ball.
