Well, I apologize for having kept you waiting virtually forever. I think I've fixed the outstanding issues you mentioned. Let me know if anything else remains.

Of course, we prefer that package maintainers fix such bugs themselves, though we don't want to wait virtually forever.

Sorry for taking so long to respond. I haven't worked on this for many years and, while I doubt it'll be of use to anyone in itself, it might be useful as sample code.

If it's not too much trouble, and since you're in a better position to know what needs to be done exactly, feel free to add the copyright notices and licenses as needed and any other fix that might be required.

Otherwise I'll try to get around to making the necessary changes in the week end.

If there is no interest in this package, I'll possibly apply some conservative fixes and make sure that no further bugs are added.

I can see two issues remaining: first, all copyrightable files should include valid copyright and license notices, and README lacks them; more important, your distribution should have a copy of the GPL; could you add it from https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.txt?

GNU Savannah task #11187: "Submission of Free Vehicle Instrumentation

Hello Dimitris.

Indeed, the project has been already approved. I don't remember to
have approved it.

Let me know when you're going to work on it so we can review it and we
can finish the registration process.

Hello Mario,

don't worry about any delays. I'm still working on "the finishing touches" to the first release of the previous project I registered a few weeks ago. (I believe you were the one to approve that one too). So yes I still intend to host this project here but it might be a couple of weeks before I have time to spend on it so there's no rush in case other matters require your attention.

Dimitris P.

PS: Maybe I should mention that the project home seems to be created already. I got an email from "root" a few days back saying that the project was approved although this task was still open.

Please apologize the delay. If you are still planning to host your
project at GNU Savannah please confirm it so we continue with the
registration processes. If we do not get the confirmation within 2
week we will assume than you no longer plain to host the project on
Savannah but if is the case please tell us - we don't bite, and it
will make us gain time.
