Hi Alexander,
While evaluating your project I have noticed a few problems which are
described below.

First of all, even though your project is Free Software it can not be hosted
here in its current state.
We only host projects that can run on a free operating system (such as

We have adopted this policy because now that completely free operating
systems exist, we do not want to encourage users of those systems to start
using proprietary operating systems so that they can use your program.

If you are willing to maintain a version for free operating systems, which
work as well as or better than other ports, you can then provide versions for
non-free systems as well. The idea is that at no point should only-free users
be at a disadvantage compared to users of proprietary software.

Your project should always work equally well in free systems as in any other
version you provide; if you have some modules for non-free systems, you can
delay their release until you have released the free operating system

If you accept this commitment then please state so and the project should be
approved in Savannah.

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".

If some of your files cannot carry such notices (e.g. binary 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

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.
