Hi, sorry about that.  Here's an updated tarball:


Let me know if there is anything else I should fix, I will add the (c) in the files copyright notice if needed as well.  Thanks.

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

Some of your binary files (images, sounds) do not carry the copyright and license notices; you can add a README file in their directory containing the those notices. Check http://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/html_node/Copyright-Notices.html for further information.

At least I could not find the notices embedded in the files.

If you are willing to make the changes mentioned above, please provide us with an URL to an updated tarball of your project.  Upon review, we will reconsider your project for inclusion in Savannah.

To help us better keep track of your registration, please use the tracker's web interface following the link below. Do not reply directly, the registration process is not driven by e-mail, and we will not receive such replies.

  PySciTrivia is free software, it is meant to be a simple trivia
game centered around the physical and mathematical sciences. 
Such as math, physics, biology, computer science, and so on. 
For each category, there is also a corresponding history category.
So for example, there is chemistry, and chemistry history. 
Right now it's for 1 to 3 players, just a simple round based
trivia game.  The players compete against each other answering
multiple choice questions. Many more questions and features will be added in the future.

There are several reasons it is being made.  I was not able to find
a free trivia game already done, and being interested in the sciences,
I decided to combine the two.  Also, learning to program with Python
has been enjoyable for myself.

It's licensed under the GPL, including everything from the code to the
sound effects. It is written in Python using Pygame, and the hope is that anyone running it would use a free OS such as GNU/Linux, but it should still run on any platform supporting Python and Pygame.
