I updated the files in the test directory and png, jpeg, zlib text files.

I also used grep to find references to Linux and then changed it to GNU/Linux.

You can find the latest version here:


Let me know if there is anything else. Thanks.

Files like test/tpixmap.cxx still carry the old notice; also, you didn't seem to take into account the note on Linux vs. GNU/Linux usage.

Please find a new tarball located here:


All source and header files have your requested changes. I have expanded the license text including for zlib, png, and jpeg libraries.

Let me know if I missed anything or if there are other compliance issues. Thanks.

I do not mind expanding the license header for fltkal source files.

What about license header for jpeg, png, and zlib source files that are included? They also refer to an external file such as readme for conditions.

I'm also not sure if the license notice in your files is acceptable: it only refers to the file and ignores the recommendations of the license itself.

What would definitely do is putting the canonical LGPL notice with the exceptions in every file.

The license is a modified LPGL V2:


In the root directory of the tarball, there is also a COPYING file.

There are two files missing a license header. They are both in the doc directory named build.md and filemap.md. I am most likely going to change them to dox files and put a license header in them. Let me know if I need to do that prior to approval. All the rest of the files should have an appropriate header describing the copyright and license.

I will be sure to use the term GNU/Linux. Thanks.

Let me know what you need me to do in order to move forward.

Hello, Mark!

Unfortunately, your submission has a few issues to fix.

First, what license are you actually going to use for your package?

Then, please note that Savannah is a forge of the GNU Project. This means that packages hosted here shouldn't refer to GNU/Linux as "Linux".

Also, please make sure that all copyrightable files in your tarball have valid copyright and license notices.
