I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah. Just two things:

- Your readme file doesn't contain a license header. Note that every file more than 10 lines long must include it. You may read this link for more information:

- In your readme, you refer to GNU/Linux as "Linux", "Linux" is just a kernel of a more complex system that we like to refer to as GNU/Linux, to emphasize the ideals of the Free Software movement. Would you mind changing references to Linux as an OS to GNU/Linux? For more information, see:
