Follow-up Comment #1:
I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah. Whilst
evaluating your submission I noticed a few problems which are described
First of all, note that Savannah supports projects of the Free Software
movement, not projects of the Open Source movement.
We are careful about ethical issues and insist on producing software that is
not dependent on proprietary software.

The third thing is that we'd like you to include a (perhaps temporary) URL
pointing to the source code. Alternatively, you can forward the code to me by
email or attach it to this tracker.
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 http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html. 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
