Concluding remarks

There are a couple of other steps involved in making your program GNUitically correct.

If you intend the program to be free software, you should seriously consider putting it under the GNU General Public License (GPL). The net is full of people criticizing it, but the fact is that the GPL works fine and takes little effort. Also, when people think they have a really clever licensing idea, they usually really don't.

If you are writing documentation for your program, you should consider writing it texinfo. Once again, there are criticisms to texinfo, and a lot of people have cleverer ideas, but I know of no other documentation system that has the following features (which, once the fluff gets old, are what really matters):

The limitations and obsolete limitations in texinfo are being discussed and addressed these days.
