Mario .. I respect your opinion, but I disagree with it.    Are you
saying that Savannah won't host software if someone decides that
"Linux" is sufficient.  Really?

Also, if you are going to ask people to change what they are doing,
and to pay attention, it's polite and shows a bit of respect to spend
time composing your letter, and at least run things through a spell
checker.   Yes, perhaps I'm being a bit pedantic on this issue, but
only in kind to your email.   I know that English may not be your
primary language of choice, but please understand that it is also not
my primary language either.

"propper" "copyrigth" "disouraged" "prefered" ...
