Hi Nicola,

Thank you for letting us know. I am afraid I cannot tell you a good place to ask for help. However, a good idea might be blogging about your new project.

Hi Stephan,

I did not know I must host the project developement in savannah, sorry.

I have started this project because I did not found anything similar (MetaPost almost fit my needs, almost). The goal of the project is quite ambitious, but it is a large task and I'm desperately looking for help. So I thought to leave a reference in the GNU site ... well, maybe in the wrong place. Sorry for the mistake.

I'll be glad if you know a good way to look for help. I'm not interested to be the project administrator, I'm interested in the library itsself.

Thank you,
-- Nicola

Hi Nicola,


I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah. While doing so I have noticed a problem which is described below.

Savannah is a central point for development, distribution and
maintenance of GNU Software.

There is a companion site savannah.nongnu.org where we also host Free
Software projects that are not part of the GNU Project, but run on
free platforms.

However, we do not allow to host your project on Savannah and
SourceForge at the same time, if Savannah is just a project mirror.
Your project development should happen primarily on Savannah.

How do you plan to use your Savannah account?

To help us better keep track of your registration, please use the tracker's web interface following the link below. Do not reply directly, the registration process is not driven by e-mail, and we will not receive such replies.
