I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in GNU Savannah.
You can reach the rest Savannah hackers (Staff) in this list:

I noticed some issues:

In the "tarball" field you linked to a Wiki page, that isn't what we
asked for.  For the evaluation process 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  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.

Please note GNU Savannah is a central point for development,
distribution and maintenance of GNU Software and other free software.
We don't want to be used just as a downloads/repository mirror of
another site.  Project development should happen primarily on

In the Wiki there seems to be some confussion with some words:

GNU is a free software operating system
( usually used together with Linux, a
kernel.  We like to refer to this combination as GNU/Linux.  You can
see a comprehensive explanation in

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

The GNU project have released several software licenses meant to
protect the user freedoms we consider essential.  You can find a list
of them in

There isn't a "GNU licensing agreement".  The term "license agreement"
is usually understood to mean a contract between the developer and
user of the software.  This is a practice commonly used by proprietary
software groups to impose restrictions beyond the capabilities of
Copyright.  The GNU Project don't do nor suggest anything like that.
Please clarify this term by using the specific name of the license in

We don't endorse Ubuntu.  Ubuntu provides specific repositories of
nonfree software, and Canonical expressly promotes and recommends
nonfree software under the Ubuntu name in some of their distribution
channels.  As far as I know, Ubuntu includes Linux as distributed by
L. Torvalds. which also contains proprietary software and "firmware".

Please consider using a fully free GNU/Linux distribution instead of
Ubuntu as the base for the live CD.  We maintain a list at

Your project is not part of the GNU project, so we cannot accept its
current type.  We want to maintain the distinction between 'GNU' and
'non-GNU' projects.  If your project is approved for inclusion into
Savannah, we will set its type to 'non-GNU'.

If your project is accepted into the GNU project you may change its
type.  You can do this by asking us.
