Hi, thanks for your hint, my description was not very clear.

Actually, I mean the section 'Linux' in the specification CAPI 2.0. My wrapper library accesses the other library and the other library has to implement the interface as described in that section. Just changing 'Linux' to 'GNU/Linux' would be too restrictive (in my opinion) because I am also using my wrapper library on a system which I would not call GNU/Linux, it is Linux with uClibc and busybox.

I changed the short description of the project and have a new archive (0.1) of the wrapper library. In the wrapper library, I changed all occurences of 'Linux' in all files. I hope it is OK now. Please tell me your opinion about the new usage of the terms.

Best regards

Hi, your project is suitable for approval, just one thing: in the README.txt file you're using the word "Linux" to refer to the entire GNU/Linux system. "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?

This C-library aims to help in accessing libcapi20 under Linux-systems.

For specifications about CAPI 2.0 check the download section of
http://www.capi.org/. Other useful specification are Q.931, Q.850 and
ETS 300 083. They are available on http://www.itu.int/ and http://www.etsi.org/.

The example programs are just for playing around with the wrapper library.

Other Comments:

The library and example programs of my software package need an installed libcapi20. It can be any implementation of a libcapi20 according to CAPI 2.0. Therefore I did not mention libcapi20 in the dependencies window.
