Your source files are missing copyright and license notices.  The package is missing a copy of GNU GPL v2.

Please resubmit your project reading carefully what your check and following instructions provided on registration page.

I'm waiting for an answer from you.

If within one week I don't get the answer, I'll remove your project.  Are you still planning to host your project at Savannah?  If not, please tell us--we don't bite and it will make us gain some time.

I'm reviewing your project.

Please use some free compression utility like tar+gzip/bzip2 or pkzip--I'm unable to extract files from your rar archive.
