Place your worries at ease, I read over all your documentation
after I had completed the form and apologize for my mistake in naming it
OpenSource rather then Free Software. It is Free Software and will not
rely on any third-party proprietary software (or any-party for that
matter). Thank you very much for you time and your service, it is

You project has been approved, but note that Savannah supports projects
of the Free Software
movement, not projects of the Open Source movement. We are careful about
ethical issues and insist on producing software that is not dependent on

In the beginning there was data. The data was without form and
null, and darkness was upon the face of the console; and the Spirit of
IBM was moving over the face of the market. And DEC said, "Let there
be registers"; and there were registers. And DEC saw that they
carried; and DEC separated the data from the instructions. DEC called
the data Stack, and the instructions they called Code. And there was
evening and there was morning, one interrupt.
