I think we need to realize that everyone who does anything for savannah
is a volunteer. We can't expect volunteers to come back to improve
things that they did. What we can do is improve it ourselves. I think
that document has not been modified, because we need a complete working
proposal to be made. We could try to consolidate the requirements by
pulling all the resources into a single outline on the wiki and use that
as our proposal.

It seems to me that a lot of work has been done by volunteers in the
wiki, it's just a little disorganized for what we want.

Check and its subtopics.

I think there should be a resources section that explains where people
can go to get advice on how to comply. We can not expand too much on
the requirements page. For example, I think a clear copyright and
license notice example would help clarify what we are asking with "or
any later."
