Follow-up Comment #1:

Hi Paul,

Sorry for the delay; there is a bit of a backlog after the summer Holidays. I
am reviewing your submission on behalf of Savannah, and there are a few issues
with it:
* You speak about "Linux", but we prefer that you use "GNU/Linux": it gives
credit to the GNU project besides the Linux kernel. Read the Hosting
requirements <> for more
* Some documentation files (NEWS, README, Changelog...) lack the required GPL
* There are a few PNG files in there, but it's not clear where they come
from. The best solution is usually to state in the README or some similar file
the license for each one.

Please upload a new tarball with these issues solved, and let us know when
it's ready for a new review, OK?

Finally, you say that Quagga is a fork of GNU Zebra; while forks are
sometimes necessary (and GNU Zebra seems to have stopped development in 2005),
it might be better to help the original package move along. Have you contacted
the authors of GNU Zebra, and/or the GNU project, to see if they would like
some contributors?

Thanks, Alex.
