Hi Mark,

Thanks for submitting abclp to savannah, and our apologies for the delayed reply.

Though we greatly appreciate your support for free software and GNU, it wouldn't make sense for abclp to be an official GNU package when abcl itself is not.

In general we'd be happy to host the patches on savannah as a "nongnu" project, but there's a bigger problem: The ABCL web page talks entirely about the (nonfree) Sun Java releases, as far as I could see.  Unless and until it works with the (free) openjdk / icedtea, we cannot support it.  I hope you can pursue that ...

Thanks again for writing,
-email is unavailable-
