Follow-up Comment #1:

Hi Cristopher,

Sorry for the delayed reply -- we are having trouble keeping up with project

Are you still interested to host your project at Savannah?
I have reviewed it, and it basically meets our criteria having in mind these

1) To effectively release a package under the GPL, you must have a file
COPYING containing the license text in plain text.  This is important.
2) All non-trivial (typically anything above 10 lines) source files
(including Makefiles, etc.) should have copyright/license statements.
3) You should not conflate the license notices for GPLv2 and GPLv3 -- your
package is GPLv2+, but you took some parts from the GPLv3 notice.  This is a
minor point, actually, as the intent of the copyright holder is very clear. 
However, some people argue that under certain jurisdictions not compliying
with GPL's own requirements effectively means that the package is not released
under the GPL.  Personally, I think this is moot, but it's better to be safe.

P.S.: Technical nit: You use readline functions, but you don't link with the
readline library.  I had to modify the Makefile to get a successful build.  Of
course, this is not a problem for the project registration.
