Follow-up Comment #4:


There are a couple of problems with your submission, which I've outlined

Firstly, please remove GIF image files from your project and replace them
with an other format (such as PNG or JPEG).

Secondly, in order to release your project properly and unambiguously under
the LGPL, please place copyright notices and permission-to-copy statements at
the beginning of every copyrightable file, usually any file more than 10 lines

In addition, if you haven't already, please include a copy of the plain text
version of the GNU LGPL, available from,
into a file named "COPYING". Your submission is currently missing this file. 

If some of your files cannot carry such notices (e.g. binary files or
audio/image files), then you can add a README file in the same directory
containing the copyright and license notices. Check for further

For more information, see

Finally, the address of the FSF has changed, and is now:

  51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA  02110-1301  USA

Please update your license notices.

Please update the copy of the license (usually, the 'COPYING' file) in your
package as well.

Updated versions of the GPL, LGPL and GFDL can also be found at:
