Hello Alvaro, thanks for the submission and sorry for the delay.
Sebastian, thanks for the review.

I've approved the project and the cron jobs should complete the
setup within another couple of hours.

I wasn't sure if the final decision was to use GPLv3 or later, or GPLv2 or later; if it's GPLv3+, you can change that yourself in the project admin interface (and please do).

Happy hacking,

I assume all admins are in the holidays now, so you have to wait until Monday. :)

Then you will receive all necessary accounts.

Oh sorry, I modified the header template instead of copy and paste and always something is forgotten.
New sources attached

nice name ;)

The license noties in the .cpp and .h files are version 2 while the COPYING file is version 3. It is necessary that this is consistent.

The source is ready, the new name finally is "Alvaro's Free and Easy Browser Library".

License upgraded to GPLv3 and a readme file with more information.
As soon I can I will update the project details.

The new source is attached

Ah, maybe one more thing.
Please write a bit about the platforms this projects has been tested on. This text can go be added to the README and the project description.

For example "This project has been tested on GNU/Linux and FreeBSD". Or "This projects should run on any POSIX compatible system." Something like this.

yes, "Easy Browser Library" is fine. "Free Easy Browser Library" would be a nice choice, too.
Even "Alvaro's Easy Browser Library" would be fine with us. ;)

You will be able to change the name in the description once your project has been approved. We talk your word for it.

I couldn't find any other issues, just upload the new tarball when you have adapted it to the new name and I assume it will be approved in due time.

PS: We also recommend to upgrade the project to GPL Version 3 (or any later) but this is not mandatory.

Sorry for use a non valid name, of course I will change the name of the project but I have not found any way to do it.
Now I am going to make changes in the code to adapt it to the new name until I receive your answer.
The new name could be Easy Browser Library
Thank you for the links

please note that one of Savannah's hard requirements is to not advertising the term "open", as this suggest we endorsed "Open Source". This includes the project name.

Would you be willing to remove/replace that term in your project?
