Follow-up Comment #1:


I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

"Linux" is just a kernel of a more complex system that we like to refer to as
GNU/Linux, to emphasize the ideals of the Free Software movement.

Would you mind changing references to Linux as an OS to GNU/Linux?

Secondly, using OpenSSL in your project is problematic, as its license is
incompatible with the GNU GPL, which your software is released under. 

>From :

"The license of OpenSSL is a conjunction of two licenses, One of them being
the license of SSLeay. You must follow both. The combination results in a
copyleft free software license that is incompatible with the GNU GPL. It also
has an advertising clause like the original BSD license and the Apache

We recommend using GNUTLS instead of OpenSSL in software you write. If you
still must use OpenSSL, you should add an exception, like that of GNU wget.
More information can be found at and in the GNU wget source

We would prefer you to use GNUTLS though. Please provide us with information
on what you intend to do. 

Finally, please include a (perhaps temporary) URL pointing to the source
code. Alternatively, you can forward the code to me by email.

We wish to review your source code, even if it is not functional, to catch
potential legal issues early.

For example, to release your program properly under the GNU GPL you must
include a copyright notice and permission-to-copy statements at the beginning
of every  copyrightable file, usually any file more than 10 lines long.  This
is explained in  Our review would
help catch potential omissions such as these.

Note that sending code to our repositories _is_ a release, since the code
will then be publicly available through anonymous access.

To help us better keep track of your registration, please use the tracker's
web interface following the link below. Do not reply directly, the
registration process is not driven by e-mail, and we will not receive such
