Follow-up Comment #1:
I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.
Even though your project is Free Software it can not be hosted here.
We only host projects that can run on a free operating system (such as
We have adopted this policy because now that completely free operating
systems exist, we do not want to encourage users of those systems to start
using proprietary operating systems so that they can use your program.
If you are willing to maintain a version for free operating systems, which
work as well as or better than other ports, you can then provide versions for
non-free systems as well. The idea is that at no point should only-free users
be at a disadvantage compared to users of proprietary software.
Your project should always work equally well in free systems as in any other
version you provide; if you have some modules for non-free systems, you can
delay their release until you have released the free operating system
If you accept this commitment then please state so and we can progress with
