Hi,

I have approved your project.  You should receive a notification shortly.

However, you are required to arrange licenses properly before you upload any files to Savannah.  You should have full text copies of both GNU GPL and GNU FDL in the package, as we discussed; file naming is not just that important, however.

Please feel free to contact me if something is still unclear. :-)

Kind regards,

I think placing one file in one directory and the other in another is
confusing. The files e.g. under doc/source are not covered only by
GFDL.

The README points to direction to read:

    doc/source      The source files from which *.html files are generated
    doc/source/LICENSE.txt      Licensing information

In same location as LICENSE.txt,

    [Edit; I added clarifying texts
     "see the file COPYING.GNU-GPL" and
     "see the file COPYING.GNU-GFDL"]

    http://cante.net/~jaalto/tmp/tmp/pm-lib-20070925.1512.tar.gz

there are accompanying files, which contain the full licence texts:

   *.GNU-GPL
   *.GNU-FDL

There are descriptive names to the person downloading the source. The
names like these are not so clear:

   COPYING
   COPYING.DOC

This may a convention used by the GNU project, but unknown to majority
of the applications.

I also suspects that in Procmail library's case, the *.DOC should
include both GPL and GFDL in this dual licence situation, -- with
explanatory textx -- leading to further confusion.

I'd keep both.

Hi,

sorry for a delay in response.  There are still some more issues with your project:

1. Please do not move the COPYING (GNU GPL) file from the top directory.

2. Please put a complete copy of GFDL (not GPL) under doc/source.  Please name the file distinctly from GNU GPL, the conventional naming is COPYING.DOC.

3. While using Open Office format is pretty OK, would you mind removing the original(?) .ppt file from the tarball?

Yes, this is a move. Proper messages to notify about the project
move will be put there once the development continues here.

Hi,

I'm reviewing your project for inclusion in Savannah.  While doing so I've discovered a few problems.

The copyright notices in the following files are incomplete.  Please use complete notices as you do in the rest of .rc files:

pm-jaorig.rc
pm-jasrv-msg.rc

Next, while dual-licensing the documentation under GPL/GFDL is OK, the distribution lacks a complete copy of GFDL.  Please put it under doc/ directory or at top level named COPYING.DOC (or alike).

Also, please convert slides.ppt file to some widely available presentation format.  You can consider using one of the following:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Free_presentation_software
or using a plain collection of sorted image files in a separate
sildes/ directory.

You can read more on our documentation formats policy here:
https://savannah.gnu.org/maintenance/DocumentationFormats

The last, I've found out that the project is hosted at sourceforge already.  Please confirm you are willing to stop using sourceforge after your project is approved for Savannah.

Cheers,
Alex
