Apologizes for the delay. We are short of project reviewers these days.

Licensing under the "GNU GPL v2 only" is problematic.  Would you agree to license your project under the "GNU GPL v2 or later"?

The reason for this is that when we publish the next version of the GPL, it will be important for all GPL-covered programs to advance to that new version. If you don't put this in the files now, the only way to port your program to the next version of the GPL would be to ask each and every copyright holder, and that may be very difficult.

We can explain the issue in more detail if you wish. If you have concerns about "GNU GPL v2 or later", we'd be happy to address them too.

(We know that the Linux kernel is under GPL2 only, though that doesn't prevent you from releasing your module as "GPL2 or later". This is a requirement for Savannah hosting.)

Please register your project once more with an updated tarball including these changes. (the review will be quicker this time)
