Hi,

I've approved your project.  You should receive mail notification shortly.

There's no problem in using CC-by-sa license for media files.  However, it would be reasonable to put separate readme file (e.g. README.media) into distribution stating clearly that the media files are licensed separately.

Although, CC-by-sa does not require to provide a full text copy of the license along with distributed files, it would be nice to have a separate file for it (e.g. COPYING.media or LICENSE.media).  This way the licensing scheme should be clear enough for the user. :-)

PS: I'm still unable to compile the project on my box.  I've installed all the required libraries, however it was necessary to hack a header or two to actually make it compile, but then again I had a problem linking it...

I'm curious to see the game running on my box--would you be so kind helping me with this issue?  You know my email. ;-)

Hi,
you can download the modified tarball here: http://dl.free.fr/eb9HlINjv/skypirates.tar.bz2
I have corrected the library problems, so now the compilation should work fine. The media aren't inside for the moment (so the game won't run), I will add them when the new importer is in place. I'm going to license them under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 2.0 license, if there is no issue with this.

Well, I would never have guessed :-D

Cordially,
Paulo

Please post the changes you've made.  I'll review it further, and if everything is OK, I think we can approve your project. :)

For that time please don't upload the non-free 3ds files to the repository.  You can always add the free versions when you are done with the importer.

One more note about licensing the media files: although we accept any 'free art' license in general, we still recommend those listed at gnu.org.

Thanks for your help and advice !
Regarding the issues you found, I have changed what I could:

1. Changes have been done.
2. Done also.
3. Done, it was quite clumsy :-)
4. Well, .lib files are normally used only to build the executable on Windows boxes. But you're right, I should review the makefiles because for the moment it is quite messy (it works on my Debian, but magically more than anything else...)
5. I planned to license the media under the terms of GNU GPL, but I'm going to give further consideration given the licenses you specified.
Replacing the 3ds files will take some time as I have to rewrite the importer... I think the best I can do is to recode this and resubmit the project after those changes are done.
What do you think I should do for this ?

Sorry for my English, I'm French...

Cordially,
Paulo

Hi,

I'm reviewing your project for inclusion into Savannah.

While doing so, I've discovered a few problems:

1. FSF address has changed and now is "51 Franklin Street, Fifth
Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA".  Please update your COPYING files as well as license headers.

The updated version of GNU GPLv2 can be found here:
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.txt

2. The file ./paulo3d/src/scriptable.cpp is missing copyright and
license headers.  Please add them as appropriate.

3. Files ./src/player.cpp, ./src/bot.cpp have a few words garbled in the license header, most probably due to some search/replace in the whole file. ;-)

4. I've noticed that you distribute .lib files as well as headers for your project's dependencies.  However, I'm unable to configure or compile the project on my Debian GNU/Linux box.  Being able to compile it with a convenient "./configure; make" command would be very helpful, so please remove any stale files left from previous builds.

5. There's no licensing information on the media files.  Are you planning to license them under the terms of GNU GPL as the whole package?  You may find some useful information about licensing non-software parts of the package here:

http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#OtherLicenses

and here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Free_content_licenses

Besides, some of the media files (*.3ds), I believe, are from non-free programs.  Please replace them with equivalent files which can be opened/edited with free 3D modeling software (e.g. blender).

If you are willing to make these changes please provide us with an updated source package.  You may create a patch against the package you already provided, or simply create a new one without the unchanged media files (for smaller package size).  You may attach the new package to this tracker if it fits in 512KB.

I've forgotten GLFW in the project dependencies...
Its license is zlib/libpng and the website is http://glfw.sourceforge.net/

Other Comments:

Media used by the game were created by me using GIMP, Blender or anim8or (freeware, but without any restrictions)

Note: "planes" was the old codename of the project, this is why in the tarball the projet is named "planes"

Tarball URL:

http://dl.free.fr/nBt0NIonV/planes-0.5.2-src.tar.gz
