Thanks for taking time to review the files and the suggestions.

I have made all the changes required. Please let me know if I am missing something. Updated tarball is available at - https://gitorious.org/varnamproject/libvarnam/archive/7fef551dd75e5ee15f03693f308bb4116e68502a.tar.gz

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

The package you have uploaded contains some files without license text, e.g.:
- The ChangeLog
- Most of the files called CMakeLists.txt
- Some source files like varnamruby.rb or tests/transliterarion.c
- The files into schemes/ folder

Every file more than 10 lines long is considered nontrivial and must include a license notice. Regarding the ChangeLog, you must include the copyright notice at the end of the file. The license at the bottom of the README file refers to the entire project, but the README file itself also needs to be licensed. Please check http://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/html_node/Copyright-Notices.html for more information, and update your files.

Finally, I've seen that in your README you refer to GNU/Linux as "Linux". "Linux" is just a kernel of a more complex system that we like to refer to as GNU/Linux, to emphasize the ideals of the Free Software movement.

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

For more information, see http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html.

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 by following the link below. Do not reply directly; the registration process is not driven by e-mail, and we will not receive such replies.
