I am waiting for an answer from you.

If within one week I still do not get a reply, I will remove your project. You will still be able to register it again once you have the time to deal with the registration issues.

Are you still willing to host your project at Savannah? If not, please tell us - we don't bite, and it will make us gain time.

I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

Please could you upload a tarball of your source in the Savannah's tracker. I am behind a firewall and a facist admin and I cannot access to your bazaar archive :(

A new project has been registered at Savannah
This project account will remain inactive until a site admin approves or discards the registration.

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: View Mail for Emacs
  • System Name:  viewmail
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License V2 or later


VM the great mail reader for Emacs has not been maintained for some years by its author Kyle Jones (http://wonderworks.com/vm/).

For years I have continued to include bug-fixes and enhancements to a patch
against VM and the later a branch of VM and it seems time to create a new home
for VM which provides a bug tracker and a community controlled central

My version of VM is hosted at at http://www.robf.de/Hacking/bazaar/vm/

Discussion for continuing VM based on my branch can be found on the USENET
group gnu.emacs.vm.info!


Other Software Required:

Either GNU Emacs or XEmacs which are certainly not part of a minimum Free Operating system.
