Indeed I missed that item. GPL v3 is fine, thanks!

the way you uploaded the new tarball is fine. Now it meets all requirements. I'm approving your project.

Additionally I'm changing the project license field from "GNU General Public License v2 or later (GNU General Public License v3)" to "GNU General Public License v3 or later". Probably you missed that item in the license list. If this action is not appropriate I can change it back.

This beside, welcome to Savannah and have a good time with it (and its other users)!

The image files in the icon subdirectory were tagged via exiftool and now feature Copyright/Comment tags.

License and copyright of the translation files are specified in the README file.

Some installation comments were also added to the README.

As I'm new to savannha.gnu.org I was not familiar with the tracker and thought I had to upload a new tarball. In the end I accidentally updated http://savannah.gnu.org/submissions_uploads/FotoPreProcessor.tar.gz instead of attaching a new one. Sorry!

Shall I still attach the new tarball to this tracker?

thanks for submitting your project to Savannah! I'm reviewing your submission.

Besides the otherwise correct files I found that the image files, Makefile and the files in the i18n subdirectory are missing copyright and license headers. For the image files you can add them as a text attachment to the file itself (e.g. with GIMP) or state copyright and license in README. If it isn't suitable to add copyright and license headers to the i18n files, please state them in README as well.

Please update your files and upload a new tarball here by attaching it to this tracker.

Best regards.

Registration Details

  • Name: FotoPreProcessor
  • System Name:  fotopreprocessor
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later (GNU General Public License v3)


FotoPreProcessor displays images found in a directory and allows metadata editing. It is written in Python and relies on PyQt4 for GUI input/output. In short, it is a frontend for exiftool, because existing solutions didn't satisfy my requirements or were to huge/bloated/...

OpenStreetMap is used for GeoTagging, by displaying a custom html file via QWebKit. Javscript based on OpenLayers does the interaction with the PyQt4 program parts.

This is an initial release. It will work on an up-to-date Gentoo installation. For the future I plan to add algorithms to detect the paths of 3rd party programs (exiftool and file are needed, The GIMP is optional) as well as a decent settings dialog.

Other Software Required:

Python Standard Library, PSF, http://www.python.org/
pytz, MIT, http://pytz.sf.net/
PyQt4, GPL, http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/software/pyqt/
Openlayers, FreeBSD, http://dev.openlayers.org/
exiftool, GPL, http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/
file command, BSD-2, sys-apps/file (in Gentoo)
