thanks for submitting your project to Savannah! I'm evaluating your project and found that the image files do not contain copyright and license notices. Please add them to those files. You can do this with various programs, e.g. with GIMP (Image -> Image Properties) or image-dired in Emacs (command c).

But, since this requires only little time, I accept your project and trust you that you still add them. You will reveive a message about the approval with further instructions.

Happy hacking!
