Follow-up Comment #3:


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

The address of the FSF has changed, and is now:

  51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA  02110-1301  USA

Please update your license notices.

Please update the copy of the license (usually, the 'COPYING' file) in your
package as well.

Updated versions of the GPL, LGPL and GFDL can also be found at:

You can find some background and a possible migration script at

(alternatively the GNU (L)GPLv3 standard notices include different wording
that do not mention the FSF snail mail address - see

In addition, licensing under the "GNU GPL v2 only" is problematic.  Would you
agree to license your project under the "GNU GPL v2 or later"?

The reason for this is that when we publish the next version of the GPL, it
will be important for all GPL-covered programs to advance to that new version.
If you don't put this in the files now, the only way to port your program to
the next version of the GPL would be to ask each and every copyright holder,
and that may be very difficult.

We can explain the issue in more detail if you wish. If you have concerns
about "GNU GPL v2 or later", we'd be happy to address them too.

Your manual is distributed under a non-free, verbatim-copying-only license.
Please release it under the GNU FDL.

For more information, see and .

Last, please advertise that your package is 'GNU'. The current page doesn't.

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.

registration process is not driven by e-mail, and we will not receive such
