I've discovered that the project uses dual GPL/GFDL licensing for it's
documentation.  Haven't got definitive answer on the web whether it's
OK.  Do you have experience with this kind of licensing--is it
acceptable on Savannah?

The exact wording is as follows (doc/source/LICENSE.txt):

        (*.txt and *.html files) is DUAL LICENCED and may be

        GPL) --see above--; *or*, at your option, distributed under

        The end user can continue to distribute the documentation in
        this dual licence form *or* select the other license (GNU GPL,
        GNU FDL) and remove the unwanted one. In case of removal, a
        notice "License <license name> removed <date ISO 8601> by
        <Firstname Lastname>" must be mentioned somewhere in the
        distributed files; that notice is allowed to be outside of the
        original files.


The project is already hosted at sourceforge (

There is also a minor problem with copyright notices in several source
files, however, it should be trivial to fix them.
