Project approved (as GPLv2+), but the notices are still not right.  The GPL has a section "How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs"; you should follow it.  For example, this is a proper notice for logic.py:

Don't mind the backup files (I removed them). I'm attaching the new tarball, this time the source files contain license notices.

Thanks for your patience, Yavor.... :)

The latest tarball (file #16974) is no big improvement.  The files logic.py, logic2.py, pydcs.py lack copyright notices.  The README files are used only when the file does not allow adding this information -- for example PNG, GIF, etc.  Python source files should have such notices.  It is OK to add them before importing the code at Savannah provided that you acknowledge you understood what has to be done.

Apparently also your project is GPLv3+, but the submission says GPLv2+.  I'll change that during the project approval, no problem.

(Also some files seem to be only backup versions (back.py, eg.py, paint.py, PyDCS.sh, test.py, test2.py) -- you might want to fix that if they're really part of the package.)

Sorry about that. I wasn't too much aware of the licensing issues. I'm attaching a newer tarball with this.

The new tarball (file #16967) unfortunately is no better:

  • The source files logic.py, logic2.py and pydcs.py still lack copyright/license notices.
  • The README files in the image directories now confusingly contain the statement that the images are part of Emacs.  They surely are not.  If you have created them, you should state the copyright holder and the license.  Otherwise, you should state where do they come from, plus the copyright holder and the license.  The reason why this is important is for the sake of reusing them in another package, and as any non-derived file they should contain such notices.  There are some situations when license incompatibility would prevent their usage in a particular program, so a developer willing to include them ought to be aware of the distribution terms.

> Now working on the documentation


While this is something worth doing, it is not a requirement for the project approval.

Please only add copyright notices to the source files, and add such information in the README files for the images -- see for example http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/emacs/etc/images/gnus/README?revision=1.16&root=emacs&view=markup

Hi Yavor Doganov.
Thanks for the reply and suggestions.

I'm attaching the modified tarball with corrected license and README's.

I'll post the source with more useful comments later..

Once again thanks.

Hi,

I apologize for taking us so long to review your project; I hope you are still interested to host it Savannah.

There are a few problems with your package:

1) Source files that are non-trivial (typically anything longer than 10 lines) should contain copyright and license notice; see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html for details.  (Note that the notice for GPLv2 is slightly different; see the license text for the correct format.)
2) As this cannot be achieved for the images, you should put a short README in all directories with images containing such a notice.
3) The canonical filename for the license is "COPYING", not "license"; please rename it.

Would you be willing to submit an updated tarball?

Registration Details

  • Name: Digital Circuit Simulation in Python
  • System Name:  pydcs
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later

Description:

This project deals with the simulation of Digital Electonic Circuits using one of the popular scripting language Python. There are several motivations for simulating logic circuits in Python. First, it is a nice simulation exercise. Second, it shows off Object Oriented Programming as well, especially the power of inheritance. Finally real logic circuits built with electronic components are the basis for computer hardware. In this Digital Circuit Simulation Software, there are options to create basic Digital Gates such as AND, OR, NOT etc. and next level of gates such as NAND, NOR, XOR, XNOR etc. Additional circuits such as Adders, Counters, Flip-flops, Clock Generators are also supported. The GUI is designed using Tkinter and Pmw (Python Mega Widget).

Other Software Required:

PyDCS - Digital Circuit Simulation in Python
GNU GPL v2 or later

This is still under developement... Needs enhancements from others....
