Just one thing, the license for this project as you mention the wrong place. This is the GPL v3 is not AGPL v3 ...
Now also has documentation files FDL v1.3

Not sure if that can correct me later, but if I can not change, please set a correct license.

The tarball is up... Tanks for all.

(file #25973)

I looked over at the tarball from task 12071 (which you should still upload here) and everything is looking fine besides two minor things, which you can fix or not fix:

  • The COPYING file in paranoia_auto-backup/share/doc/paranoia/ is better placed in the top-level directory, named as COPYING.FDL
  • What I meant with "top-level directory" in the other message was that you have one directory (e.g. paranoia_auto-backup) and put all files in there, including README, LEEME, etc.

Nonetheless I have approved your project.  You will receive an automated e-mail containing detailed information about the approval.

Have fun! :)

Only a one thing, the license for this project as you mention this wrong place. This is GPL v3, is not AGPL v3.
Also now is specific the documentation and "README" files with FDL v1.3.

Do not know if this I can correct it later, but if I can not Change, please set a correct licenses.

the tarball file now is upload... regards and tanks for all...

I can delete the project you submitted newly. Please upload the tarball from the new task here again, so everything is consistently archived. You can do this below at section Attached Files as xenu mentioned.

Thanks for all your suggestions and corrections were applied.
If I may (I have corrected all) I will reupload the file, the project at this time I move a lot, and works well and is optimized.

I wanted to be staying in Savannah for my commitment to free software.

thanks for submitting your project to Savannah! I looked over your tarball and noticed the following problematic things:

Your tarball does not contain a top-level directory. This way you could confuse users since someone might not extract the tarball in an empty directory. I recommend to move all files in a top-level directory.

You use unusual names for files. I recommend to use COPYING instead of GPL and README instead of INFO.

The INFO file contains almost only Spanish language. Even though English is not required in a README file, I urge you to do so.

One section in INFO looked suspiciously like a license information. I translated it and got "You may copy, modify, share the program or its amended as stated in the GNU / GPL in its Version 3.".  However, at Savannah we require that if you release your program under GPL, you include the saying "or (at your option) any later version". Please amend this.

Every copyrightable file longer than 10 lines needs a proper copyright and license header. The websites [1] and [2] contain information on how to this. Please update the files, including source files, the INFO file, HTML files, etc. You need to do this for image files as well, either by adding a comment to the file or stating copyright and license in INFO. If it is not possible to add comments to the language files in media/language, do this in INFO as well.

And one last thing: You submitted your project specifying AGPL v3 or later. Your GPL file however contains a copy of GPL v3 or later. Please choose what to do:

  • You replace the GPL file with a verbatim copy of the AGPL v3 and add license headers saying AGPL v3 or later.
  • You add license headers saying GPL v3 or later and I create your project with GPL v3 or later.

If this seems like an awful lot of work to do, I can only assure you that you ease the lives of everyone by doing this. Most points are also needed to fulfill the Savannah hosting requirements [3] and avoid legal issues.
