Bruno, Jim, Simon -- it seems we never actually enabled the vc-changelog project on savannah.  Sorry for my oversight.  I did it just now.  Hope it helps.

this got resolved happily: as of a few weeks ago, there is a vc-changelog GNU package.  I forgot about this "postponed" item, sorry.  resolving now.

Hi Bruno,

I would like to move forward with this request, and I gather there is no word from RMS yet as to accepting it as a GNU project. Would it be fine with you to accept it as a non-GNU project and change it later, as Karl suggested? This way you can start working on it from within Savannah. You would also have to remove the copyright assignment to the FSF, but again it can be changed later. Is this fine with you?

Alex.

This request is still on hold. I have received an answer
by Karl Berry, and am waiting to see whether the meeting of
the GNU Advisory Committee on 2010-06-01 changed something
about it. Please keep this request on hold.

OK, then please put this request on hold while I formally ask for it to
become accepted as a GNU project.

Thanks, and sorry for the confusion. I'm not going through this process very
often.

1. It would not be right to approve anything as GNU until rms has accepted it.  It's no problem to switch from nongnu to gnu when needed.

2. The normal way to have something accepted as GNU is the questionnaire at http://gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.  Of course, if you've already written rms, fine ...

Best,
karl

PS:

> Type: non-GNU software & documentation


It will be GNU software & documentation. The package should be located on
savannah.gnu.org, not savannah.nongnu.org. Only, as of now, we haven't asked
RMS for his official blessing. But we will strive to obtain it.

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: ChangeLog tools for git
  • System Name:  git-changelog
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later

Description:

The project provides support for the GNU ChangeLog format
in environments that use 'git'. It contains a git merge
driver and one or two tools that convert a git history to
a ChangeLog. And some documentation about how to use them.

Other Software Required:

Meant to interoperate with git (http://git-scm.com/),
which is under GPLv2.

Other Comments:

Parts of the code currently lives in gnulib:
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=gnulib.git;a=blob;f=lib/git-merge-changelog.c
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=gnulib.git;a=blob;f=build-aux/gitlog-to-changelog
but that is an odd place for version control and
development tools and hampers its distribution.

Tarball URL:
