I'm approving the submission as Non-GNU for now. Remember: I'm not the one, who decides about inclusion into the Official GNU distribution, write to -unavailable- for that, as specified at http://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.

In some minutes you will receive an instruction e-mail with the next steps to access the repository.

Happy hacking!

really happy to hear your suggestion
i agree 100% with suggested approach

ive been making some important additions for compat /w Official GNU. could i have one more day to get u these changes. i will then attach a .git clone of the archive, so that it will begin on the best foot(milestone).
alternately, if u have already set up the archive, i can just push the changes.

again thanks so much

I can approve the project as Non-GNU for now and later change the type to Official-GNU, when it's approved as a GNU package.
The alternative is leaving the task open until the decision is met.

I think the first option is the better one ;)
Shall I do that? Then you can use the repository and the trackers from now on and don't need to wait - and you can still offer it to the GNU project as an official package.

i would like to offer this to the Official GNU
i will try this, (probably need a few edits for coding standards,,,
could we still keep this(Non-GNU option) open until i apply and
hear back?

Oh wait, you seem to have selected "Official GNU software" as the project type. Is it really an approved GNU package?
If you want to offer the package to the GNU project, please see http://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.
I can approve the submission as a Non-GNU package, though.

Thank you for your submission! I had a look at your tarball and notices that the header files don't contain a copyright and license header (oops, "header" is ambiguous here - I want to say that the *.h files do not start with a note describing copyright and license).
Those notes are important for other developers who want to include or extend your project. Please add them.
