Hi ashvin,

I submitted records on savannah's forge a few days ago. To do so,
I had to submit a tarball of the records distribution. The
submitted release was the latest known that is to say 1.5.0.

Today, I received the following message from savannah's admins.
So It would be really nice if you could answer all these
questions to clarify the situation. If you were to answer
positively to these two blocking questions, I could make the
modifications as soon as the project would be accepted. If not, I
guess I should get rid of the blocking parts and/or I should
probably fork under a new name (which I do not want).

   we can't appprove the project as it is now.
   You will need to ask the original developer whether he permits to make the
   necessary changes. If he doesn't, you will have to replace the blocking parts
   by works you wrote alone.

   The two parts in particular are:

   Permission is granted to copy and distribute modified versions of
   this manual under the conditions for verbatim copying, provided that the
   entire resulting derived work is distributed under the terms of a permission
   notice identical to this one, and provided that the privacy of any reader of
   the resulting derived work is respected. In particular is it strictly
   forbidden to make this documentation available on a World Wide Web server
   which deals cookies. However, keeping access statistics is allowed.

   This condition is too stringent to qualify as a free software documentation.

I agree with that.

   A couple of files just have a "This file is under the Gnu Public License."
   line. This is delicate because it is ambiguous (which version, 1,2 or 3?)
   Remember that the "or any later" phrase is necessary, too.

Good catch.

Thank you very much.
