Hi Robert,

Frankly, I too do not see how 'content maintenance' is any better than 'content management', so let's keep your current project name.

I've approved your project--you'll receive an automated mail notification shortly. :-)

In response to https://savannah.gnu.org/task/?7923#comment3

I'd be willing to change the name from 'content management' to 'content maintenance', although I'm not sure if that is really any better.

The 'CMS' letters need to remain, but logical replacements are fine with me.

OK, technically, everything looks good now. :-)

However, there's  a minor problem with the project name.  Please refer to this article: http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html#Content

Will you agree to change the project name to avoid 'content management' phrase?

We are OK if you insist on the currently used name.

I've uploaded a revised tarball as an attachment. I've fixed both of the issues you've mentioned.

Hi Robert,

I'm reviewing your project.

There are a few issues with it:

1. The files `functions.pl' and `functions.php' are missing copyright notices.

2. You might want to use GNU FDL for documentation files--in the current state of your package the docs appear to be under the same license as the code: GNU GPLv3+.

If you are willing to make these changes please provide us with an updated tarball of your project.  Please use Savannah tracker to post your reply, the registration process is not e-mail driven.
