As far as I am concerned everything looks pretty good. The biggest issue was the some of your files do not have the full copying permissions statement that is recommended by the licenses. The project files are still very clear in what it is licensed under. I have approved your project. You will receive an automated e-mail containing detailed information about the approval.

Regards.

Hm, the list rejects the tarball.

Well, it is attached to the tracker in 2 parts with split
command. They can be joined with cat.

I think than the hosting requirement are meet but I can't approve the
project. I will send your last tarball to
savannah-hackers-public@gnu.org. An administrator will do a final
review and approve the project if all is ok.

The SHA256 of tarball is

Oops. I put that in following an ant example I found. I've updated my build.xml to put the following footer on the Javadoc API documentation:

This is part of the VladNput API documentation.

See COPYING-DOC in the VladNput distribution for full copying conditions.

I've also added COPYING-DOC to the top-level containing the FDL v1.3.

I'll email the tar to you.

Ohh, I can read "All right reserved" in the HTML files and no further
copy permissions. That turn the documentation into propietary and we
do not allow that.

If you want to make the documentation free put the documentation under
a free documentation licence like the FDL See
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/fdl-howto.html. As this files are not to
be distributed in printed format you can use the (L)GPL too.

Thanks for the tip about Firefox, Mario. I never knew about that one! I think I was using Chromium at the time, though. :-/

I had a lot of time to work on VladNput today so I went ahead and put license headers on everything except the .tokens files, but there are exactly three of those and that probably won't change over the lifetime of the project. I've put the notice about those into the README.

I've also updated the README with details about the dependencies and their licenses.

I've updated my build script to put license information into the generated jar files and the dist.properties file.

Thus, now all files have license and copyright info whether they come from git or a release tar.

I will send the update VladNput-0.1.4.tar.gz file to you in email (you can ignore the version I sent earlier today).

Thanks for reviewing this for me!

Oh, it's a pity than you loose your long response. I have happen a
couple of times to me. In Fire Fox (Or derivated like IceCat or
IceWeasel) you can go to Historial -> Recently closed pages, then
you click the appropiate one, FF reminds the text in text box :).

AFIK public GIT counts as distribution since the code will then be
publicly available through anonymous access, therefore same conditions
apply.

So yes, AFAIR you should maintain README and licence notices up to
date. For be sure write your question to licencing@gnu.org.

Usually one add the copy-permissions to the hand writen files at
creation time. At least I do it in that way. For auto generated files
remember if it is too hard to make the generation program put the
copy-permissions you can instead list it in the README file.

You try to compress it with bzip2 -9?.

Well, anyway you can send the tarball to me
<mariocastelancastro@gmail.com>. I will evaluate it an resent to
-email is unavailable- so an administrator can do an final
review.

Regards.

Sorry, I had written a long response last week and then accidentally closed my browser window before I could post it. (Ugh!) I haven't had time to write it again until now.

The upload link says it restricts file sizes to 512kb, which is too small for my code. I'll try to upload anyway and see how it goes.

I was thinking I could add some code to my "ant dist" build target to automatically generate the file list for the README and to put copyright and license notices on all the files that accept them.

That way I don't have to manually maintain the README file every time I add a new source file.

Of course, that means that files will not have those notices in git, only in the distribution tar files. Is that acceptable?

Hi, I am waiting than you upload a new tarball with all the changes
applied if all is ok and hosting requirements are meet VladNput will
be approved.

If within one week I still do not get a reply, I will remove your
project. You will still be able to register it again once you have the
time to deal with the registration issues.

Are you still willing to host your project at Savannah? If not, please
tell us - we don't bite, and it will make us gain time.

Regards.

You can find an form to upload files at the end of this tracker
(Section Attached Files https://savannah.gnu.org/task/?9873#attached).

Update and upload your tarball with the following changes so we can
approve the project if all is ok or comment with your the nessesary
changes (Like we are doing currently):

The clearest the better: README file should enumerate all the files
unless there is a good reason for not do so.

On a GNU box you can easily generate the list of files with the "find"
command: On the VladNput root directory run:

find -name "*.req"
find -name "*.expect"
find -name "*.properties"
find -name "*.tokens"
find -name "*.vlad"
find -name "*.vladi"

Then put this in the README file:

The following files are part of VladNput:

The code generation program is ANTLR, which is an external project.

I have added a README and INSTALL file. I have not found a way to upload an updated tar file. Is there one?

In the mean time, here is the contents of the README file. Is this acceptable?

This file is part of VladNput, an input validation framework for
applications using the Java servlet API.

There are some files in the VladNput distribution that do not contain

thus cannot contain such notices.

All distributed files should carry the Copyright and licence notice,
even if they are auto generated.

Make the generation program to put the licencing information in
genrated files. If they can't carry comments just enumerate the files,
their licence notices and Copyright holder in a file README.

Hi Patrick,

we have been following the items on the tracker all the time. But we agreed with Mario's assessments, therefore we didn't write extra comments. :)
Sorry.

But in the meantime Mario has joined our staff anyway.

I hadn't responded because I didn't think there was any response needed. I thought you said you were not an administrator so I was waiting to see if an administrator would respond. The .tokens files are generated by ANTLR from the .g files and *.expect files are the expected results from running regression tests, so they are basically automatically generated files, too. I don't care to put any notices about copyright on them because they are computer generated.

The only thing I really need to complete is the documentation on the configuration language, but I have been busy and have not gotten around to it yet.

Is there anything else I need to do?

I would still like to use Savannah to host VladNput, I'm just concerned that I have not heard from any admins yet.

You should response using the web interface
https://savannah.gnu.org/task/index.php?9873 or write to
-email is unavailable- but usally simply cliking in reply in
an email client will send the response to -email is unavailable- and
your e-letter is simply discarded.

AFIK OpenJDK is free software too so if your program compiles and run
under it the Java issue is solved.

Maybe the .expect and .tokens files can be considered trivial and
therefore will not need trival notices but i are unsure. Some
administrator can help in this issue?. Anyway a README files than list
that .expect and .tokens files and say than they are under the LGPL
2.1 (Or 3 if you upgrade) will solve this.

I ignore the practical differences between LGPL 2.1+ and LGPL 3+ but i
are sure than the FSF have a good reason to publish that new
version. There is some reason to use the version 2.1 instead of the
latest, the 3.0?

You must determine whether your project can run on a Free Software
Java suite (see https://savannah.gnu.org/maintenance/JavaIssues and
http://www.gnu.org/software/java/ for more information). It is
mandatory to run on a fully free platform to be hosted in Savannah.

We recommend you to test your project using IcedTea, or GCJ + GNU
Classpath, and ensure that your Java code runs on this Free Software
Java suite.

IceTea is based on Sun's OpenJDK and uses free replacements for its
proprietary parts. GCJ is the GNU Compiler for Java, part of the GCC
(GNU Compiler Collection). The Classpath project aims to develop a
free and portable implementation of the Java API (the classes in the
'java' package).

More information is available at http://icedtea.classpath.org/,
http://gcc.gnu.org/ and http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/.

Please provide us with more information about this point.

Also, plese put and update (To LGPL 3 "or any later") the appropiate
licence notiches on all files. A lot of files (*.expect, *.tokens,
*.vlad, etc...) lacks Copyrigth information.

Note that I am not a member of the Savannah administration team. I
only try to help you to fix the remaining issues in this project
submission that I could find. If all hosting requirements for Savannah
are met, an administrator will approve this submission.

This project account will remain inactive until a site admin approves or discards the registration.

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: VladNput
  • System Name:  vladnput
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU Lesser General Public License

Description:

VladNput is an HTTP request validation library for the Java programming language. It is intended to be used to help secure Java web applications written to the Java servlet specification. The library allows a white list of URLs and request parameter names to be defined in a file external or internal to the application. The URLs and parameter names can be expressed as literals or regular expressions for more flexibility. The data types that incoming parameter values are checked against can be defined as one of the pre-defined types or the user can subclass VladType to define their own. For parameter values that violate the policy, an error message will be logged and the application is provided a list of the errors and detailed messages for display to the client. All error messages can be specified in the configuration file if the defaults are not acceptable.

Other Software Required:

ANTLR: BSD http://www.antlr.org/license.html
Log4j: ASL 2.0 http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/license.html
Servlet API: ASL 2.0 http://tomcat.apache.org/

Tarball URL:

http://savannah.gnu.org/submissions_uploads/VladNput-0.1.tar.gz
