Hi Alex,

I created an empty git repo but it wont let me push to it.

[ro@saturn kokla]$ git push irfangul82@git.sv.gnu.org:/kokla.git
fatal: '/kokla.git' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
[ro@saturn kokla]$

I will try again tomorrow. I think the repo takes a while to configure once I tell it to use git.

Hi Irfan,

The README is fine. It is best if you provide an updated tarball, as it can speed the approval process.

Hi Alex,

Where should the comments be made in the documentation? -- Is the readme file alright? Also do I need to make a new submission (tar ball)?

Hi again,

I don't think there is any problem with including the NIST documents, or the images. You can just add a few lines to the documentation stating where they came from, and I think that would be fine.

The final say is not in my hands as I'm not a full-grown admin yet, but I am going to recommend that the project is approved while you make the changes, OK? Thanks for your cooperation, and good luck with your project!

Hi Alex,

I replied to your email. However, your signature indicated replying to this page.

I wasn't able to find any licensing information about the NIST documents. They're in the public domain and available on wikipedia as a link. However, since there is no information about distribution of these documents I am willing to have them removed from the submission.

Also the project isn't an official GNU software. I believe I meant to state that it was GPL license. I think I may have miss understood the meaning behind GNU software vs. GPL license.

Also the images in the application are taken from the KDE Oxygen theme. I've managed to find the legal GPL notice for these icons here: http://www.oxygen-icons.org/?page_id=4

I hope that helps.
Let me know if you have anything else that needs clarifying.

Hi Irfan,

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

There are a few issues with your submission:

  • You list kokla under "Official GNU software", but I don't think this is the case. Has it been accepted by the GNU project?
  • In doc/ there are a couple of NIST documents. I am sure that you have the rights to distribute them, but I cannot find any applicable license. The same goes for images in kgui. All these artifacts should be listed in the README or similar along with authors and applicable licenses.

Could you clarify or correct these issues so that we can proceed with the process? Thanks!
