Thank you, approving.

Still every copyrightable file should have valid notices.

Hi Ineiev,

I think I fixed all the issues now.

The Doxyfile was autogenerated using `doxygen -g`. I only did minor changes like change a couple of flags and the name/description/favicon, so I removed the copyright notice.

Regarding the distro names, thanks for that link, I didn't know about this. Anyway, I removed any references to specific distros since they aren't endorsed by the FSF. I use "apt", "pacman" and "rpm" for now in README.md. I will update the official website too soon so there are no issues there either (https://www.zrythm.org)

> Doxyfile has two instances of that term.

Thanks. I replaced those with "free". `grep -r "open source"` returns nothing now.

Hello, Alexandros;

I'd like to confirm: is the most text of Doxyfile really copyrighted by Alexandros Theodotou?  If not, its copyright notice isn't valid.

> I always refer to free software as free software and GNU/Linux as GNU/Linux.

Thank you, so these issues in your package are minor.

> ...(besides Arch Linux and Linux Mint which are the distro names)...

That would be fine if they were essentially distros of the kernel, but what they distribute are full operating systems: https://www.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-linux-faq.html#distronames0

> ... or "open source".

Doxyfile has two instances of that term.

Hi Ineiev,

I added the missing licenses to all copyrightable files. The tarball link is the same.

I always refer to free software as free software and GNU/Linux as GNU/Linux. I can't find any reference to just "Linux" (besides Arch Linux and Linux Mint which are the distro names) or "open source".

Hello, Alexandros!

All copyrightable files in your tarball should have valid copyright and license notices.  Files like CONTRIBUTING.md and Doxyfile don't.

Then, Savannah is the hosting site for GNU packages.  When using our facilities, people should give our work due credit and name the operating system 'GNU/Linux' rather than 'Linux' (this applies to your README.md).

At last, we don't support open source, we host free software.  Please don't use 'open source' when referring to free software.
