I'm reviewing old tasks in GNU Savannah.
Are you still interested in the submission of project 'Netsukuku C' ?

If within two weeks there is still no reply, I will close this submission request.

thanks for submitting your project to Savannah! I evaluated your submission and found the following issues:

Not all source files contain copyright and license notices. In general, any file longer than 10 lines need to include a copyright and license notice, because they are considered non-trivial. This includes documentation and build files (configure.ac, etc.).

There are also files where the license notice doesn't include the complete wording from [0]. An example is src/libnetlink.c, where only the first license notice paragraph is included. However, I guess this is a minor thing to address, since in the license text the absence of warranty is stated as well.
More importantly, some files do not add a year to the copyright notice (src/libnetlink.c as well). This is really needed, since copyright is limited in duration.

This leads me to a question: In order to add copyright and license notices, you need to be the copyright owner of the respective files. Are you able to add copyright and license notices yourself to files there they are missing? If not, I would like to ask you to contact the original authors, so they add the notices for you. This task would stay "In Progress" until the issues are resolved.

Please let me know what actions you would like to take.

Best regards.
