Hi Nick,

We did not get a response from you, so we deleted your project from the pending queue.

If you would still like to have your project hosted at Savannah, please register it again.

The re-registration URL found in our acknowledgment of your earlier registration will direct you to the proper location where you can re-register your project.

Hi Nick,

I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

Please point us with an url or use this tracker to upload the source
code. Even if the source code is under development, is important for
use because we wish to review your source code, even if it is not
functional, to catch potential legal issues early.

For example, to release your program properly under the GNU GPL you
must include a copyright notice and permission-to-copy statements at
the beginning of every  copyrightable file, usually any file more than
10 lines long.  This is explained in
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html.  Our review would help
catch potential omissions such as these.

Note that sending code to our repositories is a release, since the
code will then be publicly available through anonymous access.

Registration Details

  • Name: theJar
  • System Name:  thejar
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU Lesser General Public License


theJar is very small OS for the x86 platform that can fit into a single floppy. It is coded in C and of course, assembly. It is no huge project, it is just a hobby project among some university students. Of course it can not be compared to the Operating systems available, but it will be a simply written project, so that anybody interested and has a little programming knowledge, will be able to see how an OS is structured.

Other Software Required:


Other Comments:

Well, I know this is not exactly a project for the known operating systems such as GNU/Linux, but we are in search of a reliable server to host our tiny project. The tarball which is submitted with this request is empty, because the OS is still under development. Hopefully, if the project is hosted by Savvanah, it will be developed much much quicker.
