Hello Assaf,

OK, I'm very sorry to abuse of your patience (I don't have enough time to handle all parts of this project and my work).

So yes, you can close it and I will make a new request when I will be ready.

Thank you for your patience and kindness.

Hello,

Are you still interested in the submission of project 'Markdown Extended'?

If yes, please suggest a longer name for the "system name" part instead of "mde".

Otherwise, we can close the request, but You will still be able to register the project again once you have the time to deal with the registration issues.

regards,
 - assaf

Hello,

Sorry for the long delay.

If you are still interested in this project submission, please suggest a longer name than "mde" for the 'system name' part (this 'system name' will appear in the project's URLs).

regards,
 - assaf

Hello Karl and thank you for you concern,

I really don't see another name than the short one ("mde") or the full - very long - one ("markdown-extended") ...

Actually, I don't know how to change that name ? Do I have to make a new project's submission and cancel this one ?

Regards

fwiw, my personal opinion is that it is far too many decades of Unix have passed for any new three-letter (or shorter) command that is not absolutely ubiquitiously used, which is definitely not the case here.  i urge you to choose a four-letter (at least) name, for everyone's benefit.

(this is not a requirement for savannah hosting [assaf will continue with that, i'm sure], just my nsho...)

in any case, thanks for your interest in savannah.  best wishes.

Hello Assaf,

Yes, I'm still interested by submiting that project.

I fixed the two first points: the 'Linux' and 'Open Source' mentions.

I redraw the scripts license headers with a full copyright info following your comment, but I did not put the full license terms in each file as a single script could not be used by itself (it requires the whole thing to work).

I'm quite embarrassed about the project's name because "mde" is the name of the command (a shortcut for "markdown-extended"). Do you think I should name it with the long name ?

Regards

Hello,

Are you still interested in the submission of project 'Markdown Extended' ?

If within two weeks there is no reply, this submission request will be closed.
You will still be able to register the project again once you have the time to deal with the registration issues.

Regards,
- Assaf

Hello

Thank you for submitting a new project to host on GNU Savannah.

To comply with the hosting requirements, there are few issues that need to be addressed
(see http://savannah.gnu.org/register/requirements.php and
http://savannah.gnu.org/maintenance/HowToGetYourProjectApprovedQuickly )

The file 'doc/Apache-Handler-HOWTO.md' mention "Linux", when referring to the GNU/Linux operating system ("Linux" is the kernel, not the entire OS).
Please change the wording to "GNU/Linux" unless referring specifically to kernel issues.
See http://www.gnu.org/gnu/why-gnu-linux.html ,
http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html .

The files 'src/MarkdownExtended/MarkdownExtended.php',
'man/markdown-extended.3.man', 'doc/MANPAGE.md' use the term "Open Source"
when referring to free-software.
Please change the wording to "Free Software".
See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html ,
https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html .

Savannah's project names are global and unique (not per-user).
As such, 3-letter project names are discouraged. Please suggest a longer project name (4 letters or longer).

It is also recommended to add explicit copyright statement and license information in each file, instead of say "See License file".
This will ensure that if a file from your project is reused in another project, the licensing information is properly kept.
A copyright statement should be written as:
  Copyright YEARS NAME
or
  Copyright (C) YEARS NAME (email)

An example of an explicit 3-Clause BSD license can be seen here:
https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/release/10.0.0/sys/compat/netbsd/dvcfg.h?revision=260789&view=markup

please upload an updated archive to GNU
Savannah to continue with the submission process.

regards,
- assaf
