Hi,

the LGPL is compatible to the GPL. In addition, it grants you as a recipient the right to relicense the software under GPL.

What might be problematic is the "version 2.1 only". This is why Savannah is somewhat insisting all GPL projects use the "any later" clause.

However my interpretation of the license text is that you have the freedom to relicense under any GPL version if you choose to switch to GPL.

> 3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library.  To do this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2, instead of to this License.  (If a newer version than version 2 of the ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify that version instead if you wish.)


So I'd say you can incorporate it into your project, switching it to GPLv3 or any later in the process. If another admin thinks I am mistaken, please speak up.

I'll need to add a dependency to this project, and this may have some bearing on the GPL version.  I need to incorporate code from "lzx_compress", either by adding the source (preferred), or by dependency on the library.  That project is licensed under the "LGPL" v2.1.  I've attached the lzx_compress source.  Would there be a problem with incorporating this code as-is in my project?

manumission"

Sebastian <sgerhardt> noticed me another problem: File index.html in
"sample" directory says "The goal of this project is to supply an
open-source alternative to the Microsoft Help Workshop.".

Savannah-hosted should't talk about open-source but free software. See
the requirements page:
https://savannah.gnu.org/register/requirements.php.

Can you change your project goal to be a free alternative to the
Microsoft Help Workshop instead of a open source one?. See
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html.

There is a last problem: files in "samples" directory need Copyrigth and
licence notices, i think than project is able for approval but fix
this issue as soon as possible and before releasing a taball.

Note than i am not an administrator and i can't approve projects. Wait

November 7th 2009 in Savannah item #9882: "Submission of manumission"

Licensing under the "GNU GPL v2 only" is problematic. Would you agree
to upgrade your project license to the "GNU GPL v3 or later"?

It will be important for all GPL-covered programs to advance to that
new version. If you don't put this in the files now, the only way to
port your program to the next version of the GPL would be to ask each
and every copyright holder, and that may be very difficult.

We can explain the issue in more detail if you wish. If you have
concerns about "GNU GPL v3 or later", we'd be happy to address them
too.

For licence under the GNU General Public Licence 3 or any later
version follow the instructions at the Apendix of that licence. In
short: put this header in *each* of your files:

November 6th 2009 in Savannah item #9882: "Submission of manumission"

Hi, I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in
Savannah. 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.

Please include a (perhaps temporary) URL pointing to the source
code. You can forward the code to me by email or attach it to this
tracker but the current "URL" is void since it specifies no protocol
and no machine.

We wish to review your source code, even if it is not functional, to
catch potential legal issues early.

For example, to release your program properly under the GNU GPL you
must include a copyright notice and permission-to-copy statements at
the beginning of every copyrightable file, usually any file more than
10 lines long.  This is explained in
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html.  Our review would help
catch potential omissions such as these.

Note that sending code to our repositories is a release, since the
code will then be publicly available through anonymous access.
