Don't know? It could be an error or the truth. ;-)
Nevertheless seems like we are done now.

I have approved your project.  You will receive an automated e-mail containing detailed information about the approval.

Yes. For goodness sake Tapsell-Ferrier Limited is a legal entity that can be assigned copyright. If I put it in the (C) statement what do you think?

You could have approved this project at the first shot with a reminder to update the address on the licence and references.

Hey Nic. :)

Is the copyright holder refered to in the copyright notices (Tapsell-Ferrier Limited), a legal entity that can be assigned copyright?
If not, you need to add the author(s)' name(s) instead.

Check http://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/html_node/Copyright-Notices.html
for more information, and update your files.

And then please check while uploading files to Savannah, that your COPYING file also include the new address of the FSF.

Well, ok - good point - my gpl note is out of date.

I've attached the updated python file.

There are no other relevant files right now; this is the deliverable.

But it should be okay if I check your submission nevertheless.

At first, you added the license notices, but did not add appropriate copyright notices.

Please check http://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/html_node/Copyright-Notices.html
for more information, and update your files.

At second, the address of the FSF has changed, and is now:

  51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA  02110-1301  USA

Please update your license notices.

Updates versions of the GPL, LGPL and GFDL can also be found at:

Please update the copy of the license (usually, the 'COPYING' file) in your package as well.

You can find some background and a possible migration script at https://savannah.gnu.org/forum/forum.php?forum_id=3766

And I think it would be great if I could check your whole project not only the "only relevant file".

Hi Sebastian

1. you asked whether it would work with GNU Java. Did you read the submission? The part where it says:

   "and java (gnu java via gnu jaxp)"

That means that it will work with... well, GNU Java.

Note that I was heavily involved in GNU Java, Classpath and ClasspathX.

2. You asked for the source code to check legal issues. I'm a GNU hacker with savannah admin rights. Savannah reviewers normally just approve my projects.

I've attached the only relevant file right now, which is python.

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

You must determine whether your project can run on a Free Software Java suite
(see http://www.gnu.org/software/java/ for more information).

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

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://gcc.gnu.org/ and http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/ .

Please provide us with more information about this point.

Then please include a (perhaps temporary) URL pointing to the source code.
The description you gave when registering will not be read by the general public.
If you are still concerned with privacy, however, you can forward the code to me by email.

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 GPL you must include a copyright notice and
permission-to-copy statements at the beginning of every file of source code.  This is explained in
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html.  Our review would help catch potential omissions such as these.
