Sorry, forgot one:

  • You list the project under "Official GNU software", but I don't think this is the case -- the GNU project must first accept it before it's official.

That's a lot of work! But it's for a good cause: making sure that your software is usable and modifiable by all interested users. Thanks again!

Hi Kumar,

I am reviewing your submission as an aspiring administrator, so please excuse any mistakes that I may make in the process.

There are a number of issues with your submission:

  • In bin-debug/SplineIcons there are a few images that appear to be unlicensed.
  • As to the rest of the icons and images, it is required that they are listed (along with authors and applicable licenses) in the README file or elsewhere in the documentation. This is the only way to make sure that they are legally included in the package.
  • You should add the GPL license header to all files beyond 10 lines, e.g. bin-debug/SPLINE-app.xml or src/Audio/AudioModel.as. Even if they are part of the documentation.
  • In docs/ you have included the documentation for a lot of adobe classes; I am not sure that they should be there or that they serve any purpose. Am I getting it right?
  • Likewise for a lot of Adobe classes (e.g. src/com/adobe/utils/DateUtil.as) which are included in the package. They are not licensed under the GPL or another GNU-approved license, so I am not sure they should be there. Are they necessary for this package?
  • The readme.txt refers to something called "corelib ActionScript 3 Library", not to Spline.
  • Flex targets the proprietary Flash plugins, but the hosting requirements make it necessary to target a fully free platform. Therefore, could you test Spline against a free Flash implementation? In order of preference they would be Gnash and swfdec. They should be listed in the "dependencies" (along with Red5, also in that section).
  • It should also be possible to compile and build Spline on a completely free system (such as GNU/Linux). Is this at all possible?

Could you answer these questions and upload an updated tarball that corrects all remaining issues, so we can proceed with the process? Thanks!
