Follow-up Comment #1:

Hello Gianluca,

Thank you for submitting a new project to host on GNU Savannah.

To host a project on GNU Savannah, it must comply with the hosting

There are few minor issues that should be changed in the code:

1. In few places, the script uses the term 'Linux'.
'Linux' is the kernel, not an entire operating system.
See here for more details:

If the context is a kernel, then 'Linux' is appropriate. If the context is the
GNU/Linux operating system, please consider rephrasing.

2. In the script you have listed the following copyright statement:
  # Copyright (C) 2014: Gianluca Zoni (address@hidden)
  # Copyright (C) 2015: Free Software Foundation, Inc. and Gianluca Zoni

The FSF (Free Software Foundation) can not assume copyright of this package
from you, unless it becomes an official GNU package, and you choose to
re-assign the copyright to the FSF (which requires signing some forms, etc.).

Another case is when you have copied code from a script which is a GNU
package, and thus is copyright-able by the FSF.

But if you have written the entire script by yourself, you alone are the
copyright holder, and the copyright statement should be:

  # Copyright (C) 2014-2015 Gianluca Zoni (address@hidden)

When these issues are amended, please upload an updated archive,
so project approval can continue.

- Assaf
