Sorry, you can delete this, I got sidetracked on another project and I'm no longer working on Life

December 2nd in GNU Savannah item 9981: "Submission of Life"


I am waiting for an answer from you.

If within one week I still do not get a reply, I will remove your
project. You will still be able to register it again once you have the
time to deal with the registration issues.

Are you still willing to host your project at Savannah? If not, please
tell us - we don't bite, and it will make us gain time.

Novemebr 22th 2009 in GNU Savannah item 9981: "Submission of Life"

Hi, files "LICENSE-EXPLAINATIONS(human readable)" and README should
also contain a licence notice.

To complement wath sebastians says: If it are files than do not allow
to put the Copyright an licence information inside it then you should
put a file (Usually called README) where you enumerate all the files,
it copyright holder and licenses.
Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)

I'll fix the license. My cutscenes are plaintext so I can't put comments in. Also I have two branches(GNU/Linux and Windows) because I use some system calls to save space and avoid dependencies where possible.

looks fine mostly. Except that I ask you to put a text file in the cutscenes directory (any directory containing artwork, that is) where you list each media file explicitly by name, who is the copyright bearer and which license there are under. This should include the specific version of the license (CC-by-SA 3.0 regarding to your readme.)

If your file format understands comments, you can write this directly on top of each file alternatively. Just like you did for the source code with the GPL header.

PS: I wonder if it is really necessary to maintain two forks. The w32life version doesn't seem to differ much from the other. Wouldn't it be enough to pack two perl-files into one shared tree?

A new project has been registered at Savannah
This project account will remain inactive until a site admin approves or discards the registration.

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: Life
  • System Name:  life
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later (Cutscenes are CC-by-SA 3)


This Project is a small game in perl, essentially you're dropped into the wilderness and need to survive. I suppose you could call it a fast paced text adventure.

Other Software Required:

Perl, should work with most versions.
