We did not get a response from you, so we deleted your project from the pending queue.

If you would still like to have your project hosted at Savannah, please register it again.

The re-registration URL found in our acknowledgment of your earlier registration will direct you to the proper location where you can re-register your project.

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. While doing so I have noticed a few problems which are described below.

The license notice does not contain the last section, "You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program ...."  Please correct this, and add a complete verbatim copy of the license, which may be found at http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt.   The license must be copied verbatim and in its entirety.   You should also choose a licence for your documentation.

Please check http://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/html_node/Copyright-Notices.html for more information, and update your files.

Your project is not part of the GNU project, so we cannot accept its current type.  We want to maintain the distinction between 'GNU' and'non-GNU' projects.  If your project is approved for inclusion into Savannah, we will set it's type to 'non-GNU'.

If your project is accepted into the GNU project you may change its type.  You can do this by asking us.

If you are willing to make the changes mentioned above, please provide us with an URL to an updated tarball of your project.  Upon review, we will reconsider your project for inclusion in Savannah.

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.

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: ForumHandler
  • System Name:  forumhandler
  • Type: http://www.gnu.org portion
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later


(See at the end of the text the urls, I hope that you check the 2 last urls cause they give more details)
The ForumHandler module is a python based module which offer the possibility to manipulate vBulletin and phpBB forums to be more clear about manipulation here are some aspects that the module offers:
(before start reading : The Module is well advanced and the functions (below) are all functionnal)

-SubForums Navigation:
The module offers 2 methodes to navigate into the subforums (getForumsInfo() this should be used to find all subforums (ID and Title), getForumPage() to get the page of a subforum, should be used to get html which will be parsed with getForumInfo() to get the other subforums) .

-Threads Reading:
The module offers 2 methodes to read the Threads of a subforum( getThreadsInfo() to get the IDs and Titles of the Threads, getThreadPage() to get the Thread page.)

-Page navigation:
Many threads have more than 1 page, with getNextPage() we can get the page number and with getThreadPage() get that page

-Exporting to File:
Simple data export to file.

-Search into the forum:
also here we have 2 methodes: getSearchOptions() and search(), the first one is used to get all possible options in the search operation, and the 2nd one to do the search (with options from the 1st methode)

we have also 2methodes here :) , postNewThread() and postNewReply()

The module uses a logging system for better flexibility, also a configuration class comes with it for better use.

-Code: http://gwebmaster.free.fr/ForumHandler/
The phpBB module is not as advanced as the vbulletin one
