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: Guile-WWW
  • System Name:  guile-www
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later ((Actually, its license is GPLv3+ but i don't see that option in the drop-down list.))


This is a set of Guile Scheme modules to make URI requests (client side), as well as do listener setup (INET and UNIX domain), HTTP request parsing, MIME lookup, cookie handling, response packing, and logging (server side).

It includes full texinfo documentation.

Other Software Required:

It was written and tested under Unofficial Guile:

(license GPLv3+ -- NB: NOT LGPL)

This dependency is the primary motivation for registering this project as "non-GNU".  In the future, after some tweaks to make Guile-WWW work with GNU Guile, i will petition to move it to "official GNU" software.

Other Comments:

FYI, the source code repo is currently Git.  (Perhaps knowing this, you can init a Git (rather than CVS) repo on savannah, saving both of us a few minutes.)
