Follow-up Comment #8, task #13411 (project administration):

Hello Marijan,

Thank you for the update.
Since you have not uploaded a specific archive, I have used the file
"rlab-" from source-forge. But it would help to speed things up
if you do explicitly upload a tar archive.

There seem to be many source code files from many different sources and
multiple license.

I have not examined all files and all licenses, but I'll point to few
Verify each file in your package, ensure it has proper copyright statement and
suitable license notice, and that the license is indeed Free-Software and

Some files (e.g. "./rng.g") contains what appears to be a truncated GPL
license notice (looks like the last two paragraphs of the GPL header). Please
amend those files.

There are many libraries included as source code inside sub-directories.
Please ensure that these source code files are indeed free, and have properly
copyright and license statement (either in the files themselves, or in a clear
way in a README/LICENSE files).

One example:
The C files in './rlab-2.4.1-gcc/clibs/ctftbx/src/" seem to be written by
"Emmanuel Roy - Manuel DAVY" in 1999, with no copyright and no explicit

There are few files ('asa.c', 'asa.h') which are licensed under the "ASA"
license, detailed in the file "asa_license.txt" - it is not clear if this is a
free-license which is compatible with GPL (due to extra clauses with further
requirements, compared to a "3-Clause BSD license").
If you have references to this license being equivalent (as free as) "3-clause
BSD license", please specify them.

There are many mentions of "pgplot" - it is not clear if it is "rlab" can
functional completely without the non-free 'pgplot'.


There could be other issues. I have not looked further.

Review the code base, and ensure it complies with the GNU Savannah hosting

Let us know when you have amended these and other possible issues,
and upload an updated archive with the new source code.

 - Assaf
