Hello Bob, thanks for the submission.
Sebastian, thanks for the review.

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

Happy hacking,

Every non trivial source file needs to have a proper license notice on top. This includes header files (e.g. libtkcommon/mbs.h). Test.cpp should have a copyright+license header, too.

There are still some copyright range dates.
For example in the editor and experimenter directory.

in my experience, the review process works best if reviews and updates alternate. So yes, please upload a new tarball.

You do not need to replace the old one, just upload a new tarball with the "Attached files" form below or tell us where it can be found.

Hi Sebastian,

I can update the main() license notices (of which there are a few) and the date ranges in the copyright notices.  Do you require evidence of these changes?

If so then I'm not sure how I can demonstrate this; should I attach an updated tarball?  The main reason I'm registering the project is for subversion usage.  Would uploading a corrected tree into subversion after approval suffice?

hmm, interesting project.
Let's try bringing it to approval. :)

The first two issues I found:

- The "welcome message" in main states that the project is still under GPL version 2.

- The copyright lines should list all years any substantial changes  were made. Not as a range, but explicitly.
(You can use the same line for any file you can claim copyright for.)

Registration Details

  • System Name:  tkresolver
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later


TkResolver++ is a suite of software for conducting experiments into psychokinesis (or telekinesis), specifically, retropsychokinesis. It uses the output from a random number generator to determine the course of a line as it is drawn down the computer screen. Experiments consist of an operator who attempts to influence the behaviour of the line-drawing. The software records in a database the operator's details, the experimental variables and the observed results. The suite includes programs for conducting visualisation and statistical analysis of the database.

Other Software Required:

Boost C++ libraries, Boost Software License, http://www.boost.org/
GNU Multiple Precision Arithmetic Library
