NB: please change the project name to plain "PageScholar".  In case of difficulties, please contact site adimns.

I've approved your project--welcome on board! :-)

You'll receive a mail notification with further instructions shortly.

Happy hacking!

Sorry for delay in reply.I have attached a file gtamilocr.tar.gz to the tracker. This is also the latest source with GPLv3, makefile, readme.

P.S: The source available in the CVS link had already a verbatim copy of GNU GPL. gtamilocr_0.0.1-source.zip is a very old source code.

I've downloaded gtamilocr_0.0.1-source.zip from sf.net.

Please add a makefile or any other files needed to build your project.

Also please add a verbatim copy of GNU GPL, version 2 can be found here: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.txt  This is required in order to release a project under the terms of GNU GPL.

The last thing: FSF address has changed, please update license blocks in the source files.

If you are willing to make these changes provide us with an updated sources archive for your project.  You can use 'Attach file' form at the Savannah tracker.

Please use the tracker to post your reply--the registration process is not email-driven.

sorry for delay in review.

Hope you are still interested in hosting your project at Savannah.

There's already an OCR program in GNU (GNU Ocrad), so probably you should change the name of the project to plain "PageScholar".  If you want the project approved as GNU, please contact evaluation team: http://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html

Please use the Savannah tracker to reply (see link at the bottom of mail).
