Hello, Ben!

Thank you for submitting your package! Generally, it looks fine, but I have two minor concerns:

  • the unix name you requested is too short; what about using "message" or "guile-messenger"?
  • your project is in a very early stage; could we postpone the registration until some non-trivial functions are implemented at least as a proof-of-concept?

Tue 07 Nov 2017 05:11:01 PM UTC, original submission:

A new project has been registered at Savannah
This project account will remain inactive until a site admin approves
or discards the registration.

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process,
approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators,
effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: Message
  • System Name: mesg
  • Type: non-GNU software and documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later (I may eventually submit to GNU evaluation, but not until I've added a lot of functionality.)


Message is a federated, extensible instant messenger, written in Guile. It's designed for modernity and built for small, tight-knit groups. If more theory behind its social interaction notions is necessary, I sent a long paper to the -unavailable- mailing list.

Other Software Required:

Guile, LGPL, https://www.gnu.org/software/guile/
GNUTLS, LGPL, https://www.gnutls.org/
