Follow-up Comment #2, task #16100 (project administration):

> This isn't an official GNU package, its name shouldn't use "GNU".

i'm fine making it a GNU project (whatever that means).  it's not clear what
that entails.

> Then, you list "MIT" as the license for some of your dependencies. This is
ambiguous, please check

if you want to know the exact text, feel free to visit the project page i
linked.  it has an explicit "License" link on the side.  doesn't seem super
relevant to this project itself since it's compatible w/LGPL, and it's not a
direct dependency.  pytest runs the unittests only, and they could be invoked
a different way.

> Also, LGPLv3 is written as a set of additional permissions on top of GPLv3;
your tarball includes a copy of LGPLv3, but it should also include a copy of
the GPLv3.


> At last, copyrightable files like tests/data/get_status-1.xml have no valid
copyright and license notices. (By the way, who is actually the copyright

you tell me.  most are e-mails scraped from  but i
could easily replace it with stub data and avoid the issue.

> The VCS logs are missing

not sure what you're talking about.  what VCS logs for what files ?

> and you are not listed in as
having assigned copyright for anything like Debbugs).

how can one assign copyright to a project that doesn't yet exist ?  you're the
first person to see this code that i authored from scratch.
