I'm using glade for the UI XML, and I checked it does not clobber the comments.

This is just preliminary I'm hoping to find a mentor to further guide me with the project. Because I suspect the XML files should probably be covered under a document license.

Meantime time this is a good starting point. Thanks for your help.

Thank you, approving.

Please make sure that in those generated files like *.ui your notices won't be lost when re-generating them, and that the notices are embedded in any now-empty file like ChangeLog when grows.

resource.c is machine generated I've removed it from dist SOURCES and is no longer in the tarball. window.ui and a new file buffer.ui now have have XML copyright header comments along with gresource.xml.

updated tarball is @ https://bitbucket.org/strings/nomad/downloads/nomad-0.0.3-alpha.tar.gz

Hello, Mike;

Unfortunately, files like src/resources.c and src/window.ui still miss those notices.

Please check again, there aren't very many files in your tarball.

It's quite possible I have missed something still. This is my first major autoconf project. If you could help me identify specific files I've overlooked please let me know what files need resolving so hopefully I can get it all resolved in the next round of comments. And make the project savannah compliant. I appreciate your help.

Hello, Mike!

Please make sure all files in your tarball have valid copyright and license notices.
