Follow-up Comment #1:
I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in
Savannah. While doing so I have noticed a few problems which are
Savannah's mission is to host free software projects, and we want the
public to think of them as free software projects. A project name
that says "open" will tend to lead people to think of the project as
"open source" instead of "free software".

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

Thirdly, Please 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.
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.
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 replies.
