  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.

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

Please consider revising the copyright statement, to make it easy for future users and contributers of your project.

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

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.

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.

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.
