Follow-up Comment #1:


I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

First, apologizes for this huge delay. We're getting back up to speed to
process the project submissions we receive.

There are a few things we would like you to change in your package.

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

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

Please update the copy of the license ('COPYING') in your package.

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

You can find some background and a possible migration script at

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

In addition, if you haven't already, please include a copy of the plain text
version of the GPL, available from, into
a file named "COPYING".

For more information, see

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

The GPL FAQ explains why these procedures must be followed.  To learn why a
copy of the GPL must be included with every copy of the code, for example,

Maybe you should clarify "by Paul Emsley, The University of York". Does this
mean you're part of this university, or that you co-own the copyright of the
software with the university? For example, writing one line per copyright
holder may be clearer.

Please release your documentation under the GNU Free Documentation License
(or compatible). In order to do this, please place copyright notices and
permission-to-copy statements after the title page of each work.

In addition, if you haven't already, please add a copy of the FDL (available
from in various formats) as a section of
your works.

For more information, see also covers additional points,
including a smaller notice that you can use in auxiliary files.

What do you mean by "GLU" as a dependency? It seems it is a specification
(I'm don't know the OpenGL environment very well). Can you point me to a free
implementation of GLU?

You also say: "The dependencies are extensive, but are all LGPL or GPL (or
are image libraries)". Do you depend on image libraries that are not under
the GNU GPL or LGPL?

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.

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
