Not necessarily. Only if it copies parts from itself or another GPLed source.

So if we are strict and exact, the make_hero script should copy the copyright&license text from the source art as well.

I are not sure but i think than a auto generated file from a GPL
program is a derivate work and is therefore under the GPL and must
carry the GPL Header but i are not sure.

¿Can some administrator clarify this?

Yes, I did, because these files are generated at compile time by the make_hero script from the grx/*_univ.avi files.

I did that.

Now it does.

Hi,

Mario, thanks for help with the review process.

>I'm are unsure if files in doc

The requirement is that manuals are compatible with GNU FDL. This is easy to apply if you have one big connected manual. But a compilation of text files each between 10 and 100 lines are always a bit special, as there are too small for getting a full license text but too big to be left without any license statement.

The file FILES in the doc directory looks like a good place for this. Just make clear what the copyright&license terms for the doc files are.

PS:
I think the second sentence in FILES is contradicting. And it should also mention the version number of the GPL.

Excuse the delay. There are some details than still need to be fixed.

In file "doc/INSTALL" you say:

To run 0verkill you must have:
    * Linux computer
    [...]

Remember than Linux is a kernel, not an operating system. Your game
need not only Linux to run but GNU too (As you later say in that
file). Please change "Linux computer" with "GNU/Linux computer".

Some non trivial files still need licence notices: in grk:
corpose*.avi, girl*.avi, hero*.avi. I'm are unsure if files in doc
directory also needs licence notices, they are very small but put it
just to be sure or ask some administrator at

Now Please add the corresponding Copyright and licence notices to the
media files (those in "grx" subdir). Any non trivial files must carry
apropiate copyrigth info.

Since zlib.h is not included in the tarball replace "For conditions of
distribution and use, see copyright notice in zlib.h" with "For
conditions of distribution and use, see file doc/COPYING.zlib" and put
the zlib licence in that file. Another option is to include the full
zlib licence under each file taked from zlib.

It can completely be built using GNU make and the GCC, the .dsp files are provided to make building it using that MS tool easy.
Thank you for your help.

Your tarball contains several .dsp files who seems to be generated by
ms developer studio. Please clarify us some thing: ¿0verkill can be
builded, ejecuted and tested under using only free tools under a free
operating system?.

Note that I am not a member of the Savannah administration team.  I
only try to help you to resolve all remaining issues in this project
submission that I could find. If all hosting requirements for Savannah
are met, an admin will approve this submission.

Registration Details

  • Name: 0verkill, a bloody 2D deathmatch-like action game in ASCII-art
  • System Name:  overkill
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later

Description:

0verkill is a deathmatch-like action game for computers without pixel graphics and text mode users.
It is written in C and uses a special file format called avi (Ascii VIdeo) for animations, that, of course, consist of text.
0verkill primarily runs in text mode, but it also runs with the X window system. In text mode it tries to read the keyboard in raw mode, if that is possible, in order to recognise multiple keypresses at one time (e.g. to jump while running).
0verkill consists of a client and a server, a bot (automated client) is also included.

Other Software Required:

some libc, I'd prefer the GNU C Library
To run it under X (optional):
    libX11, license: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libX11/tree/COPYING
    optionally libXpm, license: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libXpm/tree/COPYING
Compile time only depandencies:
    gcc
    GNU make
