GNU Savannah task #11408: Submission of Free Reservation System

Thanks for your clarification.

I have approved the project right now to avoid further delays.  You
will receive an auto-generated email containing detailed information
about the approval.

We will continue the registration process in the (D)VCS repository of
your choice.  I will close this task when I can check everything is

This is confussing.  I don't know what you do mean by "proprietary
service".  A service can't be distributed or modified (At least, not
like free software); maybe you meant the _software_ used to provide
the service is proprietary?.

If runs on free software, then promoting is
a way to promote its software, and hence free software.

> My software does have a proposed Foursquare connector.

Right.  Do you think there could be an issue with Foursquare regarding
the free software philosphy?.  If Foursquare promotes proprietary
software or ideals we don't agree with, you can add a notice in the
documentation regarding why we don't agree nor support it.  If the
Foursquare platform software is proprietary software then its owners
are loosing their freedom by using it, but its users do not
necessarily do (The aforesaid essay regarding SaaS talks about this
point, among other things).  It may also be the case the Foursquare
software hasn't been published, so the question of whether it's free
looses its meaning.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
