NOTE:
This auto-generated report is in alpha-stage, and may contain incorrectly detected items.
Information here should be considered as informal suggestions and guidelines.
The official GNU Savannah Hosting Requirements can be found here: https://savannah.gnu.org/register/requirements.php

The following files are missing both copyright and license statement.

A copyright statement should be of form:
Copyright YEARS NAME
An optional "(C)" and/or contact addresses can be added if you wish, such as:
Copyright (C) YEARS NAME (email)

  1. If these are source code files for your project, consider using the standard license text at the beginning of your file. For GNU licenses, See How to GNU licenses for your own software
  2. If these are supporting/auxiliary files (such as Makefile, ini files), consider adding the GNU All Permissive License.

Projects hosted on GNU Savannah must carry a copyright and license statements.

NOTE:
If these files contain a legally acceptable copyright/license statement, they are acceptable for hosting on GNU Savannah (even if this auto-generated report failed to detect it).
Revising is not a strict requirement, but is highly recommended.
A recognizable copyright and license statements will speed-up project approval on GNU Savannah.

Files without License Statement

A license statement was not detected in the following files.

It is possible these files contain a valid yet unrecognizable form of the license statement (usually due to different formatting).

  1. If these are source code files for your project, consider using the standard license text at the beginning of your file. For GNU licenses, See How to GNU licenses for your own software
  2. If these are supporting/auxiliary files (such as Makefile, ini files), consider adding the GNU All Permissive License.

Projects hosted on GNU Savannah must carry a license statement.

NOTE:
If these files contain any legally acceptable license statement, they are acceptable for hosting on GNU Savannah (even if this auto-generated report failed to detect it).

TkLauncher.vfs/main.tcl

Small Source Code files without Copyright/License

The following small files were missing a copyright or license statement. Because these files are small (25 lines or less), it is possible that such a statement is not required, or a mention in the README file is sufficient.

Please review the list.
If these are source code files, please add a valid license and copyright statement.
If these are auxiliary files (such as Makefiles), consider adding the short GNU All Permissive License.

Possible misue of Linux vs GNU/Linux

The following files use the term Linux.

Linux is a Kernel, not a whole operating system. Please consider using the correct term GNU/Linux if the context is operating system and not Kernel-specific topic.

For more information, see Why GNU/Linux, Linux and GNU, and Words to Avoid.

Compiled Binary Files

The following files binary application files (compiled objects, shared-libraries, executables, etc.).
Such files are usually created when compiling the source code of your package, and there's no need to include them in your package.

If the compiled files are not created from the source code of your project, they can not be hosted on GNU Savannah (GNU Savanna can only host binaries for which a complete and Free source code is available).

In either case, it is best not to include compiled binaries in your project submission.

NOTE:
Removing these files is not a strict requirement, but is highly recommended.
Keeping compiled binary files in your project might delay the GNU Savannah evaluation.

TkLauncher.vfs/lib/tkpng-0.9/libtkpng0.9.so

Binary Data Files

The following files are binary data files (not textual source code files).

Some binary formats allow adding copyright and license information inside the file. For others, it is recommended to specify the copyright and license information in the README file.

  1. If you authored these files, please add copyright and license information in each file, or mention them in the README file.
  2. If you obtained these files from another source, you must verify and state their copyright and license information.
  3. Often times files that are free to download (as in 'no cost') are not Free to use (as in respect your freedom to usage, modify and distribute the files). Project hosted on GNU Savannah must not include non-free files.

NOTE:
This auto-generated report cannot detect if the README already mention these files.
If all data files in your project are properly copyrighted and licenses, please disregard this item.

Projects hosted on GNU Savannah must have a valid copyright and statement information for all data files.

Missing plain-text license file

Please include a plain-text license file, named either COPYING (for GPL-license) or LICENSE (for other licenses, such as BSD/MIT).

These are the commonly used file names, and using them will help future users and contributors for your project. If your project uses a non-standard name (e.g. license.gpl3 or bsd.txt, please consider renaming these files).

NOTE:
This is not a strict requirement, but is highly recommended.
Using a standard file name will speed-up project approval on GNU Savannah.

Missing plain-text README file

Please include a plain-text README file (or README.TXT, README.md, README.rst).

These are the commonly used file names, and using the will help future users and contributors for your project. If your project uses a non-standard name (e.g. info.txt or read-me-now, please consider renaming these files).

NOTE:
This is not a strict requirement, but highly recommended.
Using a standard file name will speed-up project approval on GNU Savannah.
