Hello.

I reviewed your project today and I couldn't found any further problems. So we can close this tracker item.

Have fun with Savannah. :-)

Answer to Question 1
--------------------

Greek: personal Perl module, not yet cleaned up and committed to the
CVS.

Roman: the standard Perl module. (not very important though)

Answer to Question 2
--------------------

I use many different Unix tools (X11 options, xterm, display, xzgv,
xmessage, Perl, libpng...) many of which may not work exactly the same
way in Windows, so I guess it won't be very easy to port to Windows. I
have no Windows and no experience with it.

Right now I guess the priority is to debug (I am debugging the
second-round mode now. It worked for me bug the CVS version is a merge
and a cleaned-up version of different programs so new bugs appeared) and
find other users :) And maybe collect comments, feature requests, etc.

Then, if one is fluent enough in Windows, maybe he can help me port it
to that system. That would be great.

Question 1: When you say 'Greek' and 'Roman' in the Other Software Required List, are you speaking of Language Packs or are you speaking of Type Face Fonts?

Question 2: Are you planning to port to Windows? I am asking out of professional curiosity. Although I am a total SuSe Linux devotee, I realize that many professionals are still locked in to the Windows XP mode [ie-> The ITS people here at the institution where I work ordered me to take NOVELL SuSe Linux 9.x off of my office box, as it was "making the network vulnerable to viruses." So, I work in XP with only one desktop and a lot of artifact clutter to deal with while I am at the office.]

Have a great day.

Sincerely,

MG Stough

Hello.

Further mail is available on our mailing list (just for record).

I have approved your project for inclusion in Savannah.

We will be reviewing the cvs code in a month (or better at your request) to check if the source files contain appropriate copyright notice and permission-to-copy statements at the beginning of every file of source code.
Our review would help catch potential legal issues early.

You should get an automated email with more information shortly.

Regards and thanks for using Savannah ;)

I must have misunderstood something about Savannah. Is it only for
finished and polished projects? There is a bootstrap problem then.

I am not planning to publish the project right away, just clean up my
private mess (developed at home over the years) and put it on a public
place with regular backups so I don't have to take care of the hosting +
bandwidth + etc. myself.

I found a beta-tester to help me comment the installation procedures:
http://www.pgdp.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=154856#154856
Another Distributed Proofreader is interested in my tools too.

Until the software is not officially "publicly released" it has no
status with respect to free or proprietary software: it is private
software.

Do you write a copyright statement first thing of all every time you
create a new file?

Sanity check: I am requesting the Savannah team for CVS write permission
on some place on their disks. If/when I have it, you will have to trust
me to not remove that legalese (I guess you don't keep looking all CVS
changes in order to catch that). If you trust me that much, you can
trust me to be able to include those things in the now-existing files.
If/when new files exist, I will have to think about it anyway.

The tarball I sent you will not be committed to the CVS as is. I will
need to remove the hardcoded paths in there, make it easier to install
for others, document things and algorithms used, explain what I did to
custom VIM behaviour for others to adapt it to their pet editor, etc.

You wrote in your first mail:
Please include a (perhaps temporary) URL pointing to the source code.
We wish to review your source code, even if it is not functional, [...]

> And because of tools/*:


What about tools? I can see only one file there in my disk:
Catalog_Extract.pl
Maybe it got into the tarball I sent you too. It it something different,
independent, I once did to help somebody on the gutvol-d mailing-list.

<-----------< End of quotation <-------------<

Hello.

| Is it only for finished and polished projects

We can also approve project without source code, but if you upload something in planning phase it has to valid with our policy, too.

We host free software projects and provide developer tools for the project maintainers and members.

But it's all /public/, because the code has to be open everytime. So if you would like to program on your own something, don't use Savannah.

| no status with respect to free or proprietary software

We only host free software that can run on free operating systems.

| Do you write a copyright statement first thing of all every
| time you create a new file?

No because a file <10 lines doesn't need a copyright, or even cannot be copyrighted. ;-)
But if you would like to publish something on a world-readable-platform (like Savannah), you had to keep care of copyright and license issues.

So if you really care about privacy, how could be Savannah be useful for you? We don't host /private/ projects.

Clarify this point please.
Thanks.

Hello.

Sorry, watching to the false tarball. :(
We are now still in discussion-your-project status.

| Oh. I hadn't thought of that. You want that legalese as soon as
| the very first draft versions of a project?

We want it now.
In order to release your project properly and unambiguously under the GPL,
please place copyright notices and permission-to-copy statements at the beginning of every file of source code.

In addition, if you haven't already, please include a copy of the plain text version of the GPL,
available from http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt, into a file named "COPYING".

For more information, see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html.

The GPL FAQ explains why these procedures must be followed.
To learn why a copy of the GPL must be included with every copy of the code, for example,
see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#WhyMustIInclude.

And because of tools/*:
Licensing under the "GNU GPL v2 only" is problematic.
Would you agree to license your project under the "GNU GPL v2 or later"?

The reason for this is that when we publish GPL v3,
it will be important for all GPL-covered programs to advance to GPL v3.
If you don't put this in the files now, the only way to port your program to GPL v3 would be to ask each
and every copyright holder, and that may be very difficult.

We can explain the issue in more detail if you wish.
If you have concerns about "GNU GPL v2 or later", we'd be happy to address them too.

And at last, in order to release your project (the documentation of it) properly and unambiguously under the FDL,
please place copyright notices and permission-to-copy statements after the title page of each work.

In addition, if you haven't already, please add a copy of the FDL
(available from http://www.gnu.org/licenses/fdl.html in various formats)
as a section of your works , and as plain text in a file named 'COPYING' (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/fdl.txt).

For more information, see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/fdl.html#SEC4

http://www.gnu.org/licenses/fdl-howto.html also covers additional points,
including a smaller notice that you can use in auxiliary files.

Regards and look forward to your updated tarball.

P.S.: You can send the tarball to me per private mail, but reply to this tracker item nevertheless.

Hello.

Please notice for further work:
All included Perl modules must be available under a GPL compatible license (the Perl license is GPL compatible).

I have approved your project. You will receive an automated e-mail containing detailed information about the approval.

Regards.

Is this the right one? Is this the preferred way to communicate?

I sent Sebastian a TAR archive by mail.
Is this enough or should I submit this TAR archive again in this form?

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

Please include a (perhaps temporary) URL pointing to the source code.
The description you gave when registering will not be read by the general public.
If you are still concerned with privacy, however, you can forward the code to me by email.

We wish to review your source code, even if it is not functional, to catch potential legal issues early.

For example, to release your program properly under the GPL you must include a copyright notice and
permission-to-copy statements at the beginning of every file of source code. This is explained in
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html. Our review would help catch potential omissions such as these.
