I was wondering if there was any way I could check the status of the Games Based Linux Distro submission?  The people working on the project had requested I send an email to you all at Savannah to see if we had a approval or denial on the project hosting.

Type: GNU

Games Based Linux Distro (
This project a brand new linux distribution to run off a LiveCD. The objective is to get a ISO image that people can download and have a portable Linux gaming system anywhere on the go. It will start off with simple games, but as we move on, we will be building our own games and software.
Currently, we are working on building the LiveCD with a Ge ntoo linux base. We are using Catalyst to build the iso images and to create the compressed filesystem so that we can include more software.
As of right now we have no releases out. This is mainly because we have no storage area to place our iso images.
Our for this project are to get from the standard x86 computers and into several gaming machines such as the Playstation 2 and the XBox. We are going to get a very stable and clean version for the PC, and then we will work towards the future by designing the software for new architectures.

Other Software Required:
Linux Kernel
Standard Linux Programs (Xorg, OpenOffice, Mozilla, etc.)
Games (Enemy Territory, American Army, etc.)
