Again (, we don't
support open source but free software.  We care about ethical values
not only technical powerfullness:

I'ts very easy to see the Oracle JDBC is propietary, because it
excludes people from (Verbtim quote) "Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Libya, North
Korea, Syria, nor any country to which the United States has
prohibited export".  Only a tyrant would agree with this
freedom-threathing requirement.  I'm quite sure you don't want to
exclude those people, but that is what happens when you develop a
software using a library without reading the license first :(.

This project (In it current state) can't be hosted here becuase we
don't allow propietary dependies.  A software than requires the user
to install propietary software in order to run don't gives true
freedom but only a false feeling of freedom to their users.

Feel free to reresubmit the project if someday you get free of those
dependencies.  Don't forget to read the hosting requirements
( before checking
the box "I agree with the hosting requirements" :).  If you have any
dobut or inquire about GNU Savannah subscribe and forward your
question to
