i'm pretty sure i already have that.  Here's what i use:

 * Aleader, Copyright (C) 2003 Joshua Nathaniel Pritikin
 * This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; licensing details
 * are available in the file COPYING, found in source distributions.
 * Aleader source code is available at <>.

Is this insufficient?

COPYING is _already_ in the source distribution.  Are you sure
you're looking at aleader-0.9.3.tar.bz2 ?

i don't mind at all.  i prefer "GNU/Linux".  However,
i just checked and i don't have any references to "Linux"
_or_ "GNU/Linux" on my web site or in my source distribution.

i guess i just wrote "Linux" in my savannah submission
as a careless mistake.  (i can re-submit my savannah
application with only this change...)

Yes, i am already familiar with this argument.

Please tell me whether i have to change anything besides
the "Linux"->"GNU/Linux" change in my savannah submission.

Is it really true that i don't have to change anything
on my web site or in my source distribution?

Victory to the Divine Mother!!         after all,
