Hi, thank you for the comment.  There's no problem in adding copyright and licence notice to those files.  I attach the new tarball m17n-lib-1.6.4.tar.gz.

I'll fix the term "Linux" soon after the project is created.

Best regards.

thanks for submitting your project to Savannah! I looked into the tarball and the only files that need fixing are the pkg-config files (.pc) and the src/README file. Please include the copyright and license notice there. The rest looks fine however.

Note that Savannah supports projects of the Free Software movement, not projects of the Open Source movement.

We are careful about ethical issues and insist on producing software that is not dependent on proprietary software.

While Open Source, as defined by its founders, means something pretty close to Free Software, it's frequently misunderstood.  For more information, please see http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-software-for-freedom.html.

"Linux" is just a kernel of a more complex system that we like to refer to as GNU/Linux, to emphasize the ideals of the Free Software movement.

Would you mind changing references to Linux as an OS to GNU/Linux? I noticed this in the description (you are able to change this after project creation).

For more information, see http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html.
