Hi Eric,

I have approved your project as without source code. You will receive
an automated e-mail containing detailed information about the approval.

This means that we will look your source code in a month(more or less)
looking for any kind of problem, like licensing problem(copyright
and license notice missing, some files like 'COPYING' missing) and
dependencies that aren't licensed under a GPL-Compatible license.

Hi Eric,

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

As you said, you do not have source code, to approve your project we
must do it as without source code, this mean that we will review your
source code in a month(more or less) looking for any kind of problem,
are you agree with this point?

  Project: WizAVRd

This project would create and distribute a free software Code Wizard that would help a user to create a skeleton software project for the Atmel AVR microcontroller. The Code Wizard would be a GUI based program that allows users to graphically select items and features of the AVR microcontroller. The Code Wizard would then generate C language code that is compiled by the GCC toolset for the AVR target. [NOTE: The AVR GCC toolset comprises avr-libc which is a project currently being hosted by Savannah.] The Code Wizard is meant to complement the Free Software toolchain for the AVR target (GNU Binutils, GCC, avr-libc, GDB, avrdude, simulavr).

Currently there is not any source code that has been created. There is current interest to develop this project by 5 developers.

This project is intended to be simulataneously developed as cross-platform, with equal performance targeted, especially on GNU/Linux.

The GUI platform has yet to be chosen, but there is interest in using one of: Tcl/Tk, Python, wxWidgets (on SourceForge), or some other sufficiently cross-platform GUI-enabled languages. Currently, the developers are leaning towards Tcl/Tk as one of the developers has written some sample code.

The information about the various AVR devices that will be used by the Code Wizard, will be stored in XML data files. This provides an open standard as well as the possibility of sharing this data with other free software AVR projects such as avrdude (which is also already hosted on Savannah).

Other Software Required:
  Unknown at this time.

Other Comments:
  Please note that a number of AVR related free software projects are already hosted on Savannah: avr-libc, avrdude, simulavr, uisp, avrusb, freeice, and the AVR "umbrella" project (avr).

I'm listed as an Admin on avr-libc and the AVR "umbrella" project, and listed as a developer on avrdude. So I have had prior experience with running free software projects on Savannah. Another admin/developer on those projects will be joining this project as well.

This Code Wizard does not depend on any of the above-listed projects, but it does complement them.

This project will also fall under the aegis of the AVR "umbrella" project.
