Follow-up Comment #1, task #9025 (project administration):

Sorry for the delay. It would be best that you add the license notice and
copyright notice, before I accept the project.

So first problem with this project is that it depends upon OpenSSL. The
OpenSSL license is incompatible with the GPL. I cannot accept a project that
has a dependency on an incompatible library unless an exception is placed in
the submitting project's license notice.

I would like you to reconsider replacing the OpenSSL dependency with the
dependency gnutls, nss, or other gpl compatible library. gtk-vnc already has
this dependency. You could also replace python-openssl with python-gnutls.

It appears that you are submitting this project under the GPL v3, so I
recommend following this guide to place license notice in all of your source

In addition if you do plan on using the OpenSSL dependency, you must place
this exception in license notice as well:

This program is released under the GPL with the additional exemption that
compiling, linking, and/or using OpenSSL is allowed.
