Follow-up Comment #3:


In order to release your project properly and unambiguously under the GNU
GPL, please place copyright notices and permission-to-copy statements at the
beginning of every copyrightable file, usually any file more than 10 lines
long. A number of your source files are missing these necessary notices.

Secondly, the word document format is a closed, proprietary format and not
fully readable by Free software. Please use a format that is fully readable

GNU FDL too.  Also, please include copyright statements for your
documentation, stating its license and copyright holders. 

Finally, please address the points that I raised earlier, with regards to
your project's name. 

If you are willing to make the changes mentioned above, please provide us
with an URL to an updated tarball of your project.  Upon review, we will
reconsider your project for inclusion in Savannah.
