Hi all.

For what I understand of all projects wich
want to be hosted in Savannah must comply with those requirements:
both the GNU and the non-GNU projects.

Karl: I'ts fine if gnuprologjava runs on a fully free.  I wouldn't
have rejected the project if this information were included in the
submission form, but it didn't; instead Pavan wrote "It was initially
developed using JDk 1.2" but nothing about another, free
implementation (I.e: "But now it's developed on IcedTea").  Based on
this project description, I rejected the submission because the Sun
JDK 1.2 isn't fully free (Nor are the current versions AFIK).  I
appreciate your opinion as a longstanding free software volunteer;
please tellme what do you think I should do when the description says
it run on a propietary platform but not on a free one.

Pavan: If you develop and test gnuprologjava in a free software Java
implementation and it don't requires propietary software free feel to
resubmit the project, but this time please don't forget to say what
free implementations can run it ;-).
Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
