Sure, over the next several weeks (sooner or later).

Thanks for your help.

Happy hacking!

Thank you, approving.

Could you check your other Savannah-hosted packages for such omissions?

> It's a text file; why doesn't it permit comments?

It's actually a binary format (note magic numbers and ^_ throughout) w/ a large textual component.  I've described this...

> And even if it didn't, the notices should be added in a README file in the same directory with the files in question.

...in the new doc/README file, per your suggestion.  Thanks!  Here's the doc/README in its entirety:

| This directory contains documentation for Guile-BAUX.
|
| The primary format is Info -- use "make info" or "make" to build it.
| You can also obtain PDF output w/ command "make pdf".
|
| The documentation source file guile-baux.texi has its own copyright notice.
| Most other source files are too small to have their own notice.  One notable
| exception is the file "snippets", which is in "texinfo snippet archive"
| format (info "(guile-baux) ts-base").  Because it's a binary format file,
| it doesn't have a comment syntax that supports adding a copyright notice.
| Furthermore, it is generated by scanning actual source files, so if anything
| it should fall under the following copyright notice:
|
|  Copyright (C) 2010-2020 Thien-Thi Nguyen
|
|  Copying and distribution of this file, with or without modification,
|  are permitted provided the copyright notice and this notice are preserved.
|
| which you will note is the same copyright notice as this README file.  Ah,
| congruence!  :-D

It's a text file; why doesn't it permit comments?

And even if it didn't, the notices should be added in a README file in the same directory with the files in question.

> Anyway, that is a generated file; it is remade if you should touch any of the source files and then do "make".  It is distributed in the spirit of documentation: possible to regenerate, but not necessary, so we distribute it as a convenience to the user.


.info files are also possible to regenerate and distributed as a convenience to the user; however, they do contain copyright and license notices.

Thank you!

doc/snippets still lacks copyright and license notices.

I think you means that your package isn't going to have the conventional procedures of installation; however, this is orthogonal to distribution.  You still have a set of files that make your package, so they do form a tarball, for the purpose of Savannah.

Now, your README lacks copyright and license notices; please check other copyrightable files as well.

Registration Details

  • Name: Guile-BAUX
  • System Name:  guile-baux
  • Type: non-GNU software and documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later (The item "my tarball includes a copy of the license" is not exactly correct since the project functions like GNU gnulib -- no release tarballs.  However, the repo does indeed contain a COPYING file (GPLv3) so that's why this item is checked off -- it follows the spirit of the item.

The item "origin and license of media files is specified" is checked-off even though there are no media files in this project.)


Description:

Guile-BAUX is a set of Guile Scheme modules (some of them functioning as programs executable from the command-line) aimed towards easing the maintenance of Guile-related projects.  This includes areas such as:

- documentation extraction/organization/generation
- dependency (between modules) computations
- extraction of ".x" info for C-language integration
- support for "two-layer" (C + Scheme) modules
- etc

It does this while itself maintaining compatibility w/ Guile versions from 1.4 and up, and operating much like GNU gnulib (copying files into the package, no fixed releases, etc).

Guile-BAUX is currently used in every Guile-related package that I maintain, including GNU Guile-SDL, GNU Alive, Mixp, Guile-PG, Guile-WWW, and so on.

Until now I've maintained it in private, but recently, a needed change to Mixp showed that this important piece of maintenance functionality should be public, in order to guarantee proper succession in case of ttn bus error...
