Follow-up Comment #2, task #13340 (project administration):

Hello Assaf,
Thank you very much helping me for submitting!

> First,
> You've mentioned interest in registering the project as "Official GNU
> You can certainly host a Free-Software project on GNU Savannah without it
being an official GNU package.

I will first register on GNU Savannah and check for Official GNU Softwaree
registration later as it should not be trivial in my case.

will have to consult more experienced people regarding this issue.

the better.

getcgivar and e2fsck are needed as part of the source code 
(if needed I will rewrite theses 2 small files but should be difficult to me
to definitively hide the original logic)
rar and Afio should be optional because they are only called by scripts, if
user data use theses formats.
(if needed I will comment the code calling them).

copyright and license statements to them.

The FIG files are genearated using the xfig GUI, that's why I do not put
copyright into (but in fact I should).
The PNG files are generated from the FIG ones for the texinfo documentation
provided within the tarball (by "make dist" autoconf's query).
I thought this was needed (as flex/bisons output files for instances) but
maybe I'm wrong.

I do create all media files so I add 3 README files mentionning them:
- doc/mediatex-figures/README
- example/README
- useCases/README

Maybe I'm wrong as I do not mention the media files into the main README file.
Am I?

Please find the new release tarball here:
