I have fixed the issues. I can't see what is missing in skills.py though.

Best regards.

Thank you!

As I can see, advantages.dat, INSTALL, quirks.dat, skills.dat,
skills.py, TODO lack copyright notices and distribution terms.

Could you fix that?

Hello, Mateus!

Thank you for your submission!

As far as I can see, there are extra files in your archive
that don't actually belong to fgccp sources, like the old version
and the backup files; could you remove them?

Also, please make sure that all the remaining files have proper
copyright and licensing notices.

Thank you!

"The Generic Universal RolePlaying System, or GURPS, is a tabletop role-playing game system designed to allow for play in any game setting" (Wikipedia)
It is easy to find programns for character creation to play GURPS in non-free OSes but I had a hard time searching a free one for GNU/Linux. I found one by Ignacio Solis, but it is way too old (2003) and doesn't seem to be maintained anymore, my intent is to modify his original program to make it complete (it wasn't even finished) and update to GURPS 4th edition.

The programming language is Python and uses pygtk as dependence.

Other Software Required:

pygtk http://www.pygtk.org/ GNU LGPL

Other Comments:

I intend to keep Iganacio Solis' old version on the server as well (it is only ~28kb) and create a new one, also relicensing it under GNU GPLv3 or later (the original was GNU GPLv2 or later).
