I've got an impression that your package is basically a short single file (much shorter than the text of the license it uses).  We discourage simplistic packages on Savannah.  They can be hosted on a single web page and needn't a full-fledged Savannah group.

Registration Details

  • Name: Gemini server compatible with a subset of CGI
  • System Name:  cgemi
  • Type: non-GNU software and documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later


CGemI is a server for the Gemini protocol. Gemini is an internet protocol aiming to be significantly simpler and lighter than WWW, while providing more features than Gopher.

CGemI aims to provide a CGI-like interface for scripts to generate Gemini pages on demand. I am also aiming to use this server in a future project for a Gemini frontend for the Mastodon API.

CGemI is written in C with only one, very common, external dependency.

Other Software Required:

POSIX operating system (libc, compiler, and make) - various implementations, for example glibc, gcc, and GNU make (under LGPLv2-or-later and GPLv3-or-later respectively)
OpenSSH - Apache License - <https://www.openssl.org/>
