I'm also a member of APRIL so I double-blame you for talking me about "open source" ;)

This aside, I approved your project :) You'll receive a confirmation mail shorty.

You will find the current source code attached. As a member of the french 'APRIL' association, I think I have a good idea of free software philosophy.  I hope the code will meet your requirements, otherwise I will try to make the necessary improvements !

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

Note that Savannah supports projects of the Free Software movement, not projects of the Open Source movement.

We are careful about ethical issues and insist on producing software that is not dependent on proprietary software.

While Open Source as defined by its founders means something pretty close to Free Software, it's frequently misunderstood.  For more information, please see http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-software-for-freedom.html.

You can forward the code to me by email or attach it to this tracker.

We wish to review your source code, even if it is not functional, to catch potential legal issues early.

For example, to release your program properly under the GNU GPL you must include a copyright notice and permission-to-copy statements at the beginning of every  copyrightable file, usually any file more than 10 lines long.  This is explained in http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html.  Our review would help catch potential omissions such as these.

Note that sending code to our repositories is a release, since the code will then be publicly available through anonymous access.

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.

Registration Details

  • Name: ecume
  • System Name:  ecume
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later


Ecume is an open source rendering system for photo-realistic and physicaly unbiased image synthesis. It is written in C++ and built around a flexible ray tracing core and an extensible object-oriented design.

Currently the renderer is in early developement stage, but it is able to produce simple images.

Main goals :
   -Unbiased renderer with maximal support of real optics (motion
blur, spectral colors, SSS,...)
   -C++ with maximum optimisation for speed
   -SMP capability
   -Linux platform as a main target
   -Extensible architecture
   -XML file format, integration with blender
   -Renderman API compatibility
   -Pure raytracer
   -Minimum dependencies (text-based, boost libraries, openexr)
   -Programmable shading in Python
   -Network rendering

Other Software Required:

Boost library
OpenEXR library
GreyCstoration (http://www.greyc.ensicaen.fr/~dtschump/greycstoration/download.html)

Other Comments:

My source code is not avaible on the web, I would like to send by email to a Savannah administrator
