Made the requested corrections, please check the attached version 2.1. Also for the name 'weabit' may be the better unix_name?

One more point: could you suggest a longer and more descriptive unix_name for this group than 'wab'?

I see.

Your tarball lacks a copy of the license; the copyright notices don't follow the recommended format.

Could you fix that?

Also, your changelog isn't copyrightable yet, but when it grows, it will need copyright and license notices; you could add them right now.

Here is the next release which is a bit more involved.

This is a collaborative project, we would benefit from revision control and issue tracking in the future.

Hello, Svetlana!

We discourage simplistic projects: it's just about 150 lines, much fewer than the license.  It doesn't look like it needs a separate Savannah group, it could be hosted on a single web page.
