Initial import with fixed licensing headers in source files. Thanks!

Thanks!  Project approved, you should receive notification shortly.

In general, it is better to use the license notice as specified in the license -- although the intent is clear, some peculiar legislations might treat the package as not effectively licensed under this license (it appears that this point is moot, but still it is better to be safe).  So for your project that part would be:

| Objective-Gtk is free software: you can redistribute it and/or
| modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public
| License version as published by the Free Software Foundation,
| either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later
| version.

I do not mind having the project move to LGPLv3 or later.

I am reviewing your project -- everything looks fine except that the license is "LGPLv3 only".  We don't accept projects licensed this way, as it imposes tremendous difficulties for users and distributors when the licenses cannot be upgraded for some reason.  Please see https://savannah.gnu.org/maintenance/GnuGplTwoOrLater for details.

Would you be willing to change the license to LGPLv3+ and upload a
revised tarball?

Otherwise, this is a pretty exciting and important project.  There
were some ObjC GTK bindings in the past, but they were never ported to GTK+ 2, AFAIK.
