Follow-up Comment #1:
I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah. While
doing so I have noticed a few problems which are described below.
First of all, we need a detailed technical description that specifies such
requirements as programming languages and external libraries. It should be
at least one-half a page.
Secondly, please include a (perhaps temporary) URL pointing to the source
code. Alternatively, you can forward the code to me by email or attach it to
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 GNU GPL you must
include a copyright notice and permission-to-copy statements at the beginning
of every copyrightable file, usually any file more than 10 lines long. This
is explained in http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html. Our review would
help catch potential omissions such as these.
Note that sending code to our repositories _is_ a release, since the code
will then be publicly available through anonymous access.
Also, I have noticed that you want to use the GNU FDL for a software package.
Please note that this is not recommended and we suggest using a Free Software
license, not a Free Documentation license for software. Could you please
clarify this point?
If you are willing to make the changes mentioned above, please provide us
with an URL to an updated tarball of your project. Upon review, we will
reconsider your project for inclusion in Savannah.
