Hello, Alexander!

Savannah is a hosting service for free software; your package identifies itself as open source.

Then, Savannah is a hosting service of the GNU project; people who host software here agree that the combination of GNU and Linux should be named "GNU/Linux" or "GNU+Linux", not "Linux".

Another issue would be harder to address: the primary platform for OCRLib is MacOS, it's a proprietary system.

(I expect that there must be more issues with your package, please check our requirements and the Registering HowTo.)
