I've approved your project--welcome on board! :-)

You'll receive a mail notification with further instructions shortly.

Happy hacking!

Indeed, you did :)

As promised, I had recommended your project for approval already on Thursday. Now you just have to lean back until an admin comes about and hits the approval button.

your new update has fixed nearly all open issues.

The manual needs a copyright&license text on top, too. Then I suggest your project for approval. :)

your project has been reviewed.
A few issues prevent the project from being approved right away.

Below you will find the protocol of the evaluation. If you
are still interested in submitting the project, please update
your project accordingly so the project can be reconsidered for
inclusion in Savannah.


Project name: rand

Intelligible. (OK)

Neither proprietary dependencies nor recommendations. (OK)

The complete project is licensed GPL compatible. (OK)
A copy of the verbatim license text is included. (OK)

# Not all non-trivial source files bear an appropriate
# copyright & license notice on the top.
# rand.1 and the makefile lack them. Please fix.

> Terms used:

# The rand.c contains a version message saying the program
# is for "Linux", which should be altered to "GNU/Linux"
# because the context suggests this is not only about the kernel.
# http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html

(Reviewer's remark: On a brief look, the program seems to be written very portable. Therefore, it may be useable on all systems for which a standard compliant C compiler exists, not only GNU/Linux)

The first line seems to refer to an interim project named "bricker". This should be changed to the name the project is now
released under.
