Hi Mark,

Everything seems to be fine. I am approving your submission.

As to the problem that you state: "If I understand correctly, in order to
distribute Bo-Keep (GNU GPL v3 or at your option any later) with GnuCash, one
must upgrade all of the files that say [...]".
My opinion is that you do not need to patch GnuCash or upgrade any files: you
can just distribute both counting on the compatibility between GPLv{2,3} and
GPL3+. Distributions do this kind of thing every day. Only if GnuCash was
GPLv2 and Bo-Keep was GPLv3 would you have to consider compatibility. And even
in this case, it is not clear that Bo-Keep is a derivative work of GnuCash:
using public interfaces is not the same as linking. As GnuCash is an optional
dependency there seems to be little trouble.

Welcome, and have fun!

I've approved your project--welcome on board! :-)

You'll receive a mail notification with further instructions shortly.

Happy hacking!
