What does this mail mean for me?
Do I am now rejected from the Ubuntu App Showdown??

You write from 35 source files....
My code is lightweight and easy to understand. Where are the 35 source
I added only 3 additional dialogs after the command "quickly create
ubuntu-application .." (including 3 .py files ) and 2 additional
.py-files ( and This was my first application
with Python, Glade and Quickly.
Here are my statements for the files, i created during development.
Comment for the 3 additional dialogs:
They only contain the 3 steps that are all the same in all three
1) Calculate the results from the input-fields
2) Export the results on file system in a CSV (including
3) Clear the dialog to initial state
Comment for the 2 additional .py-files:
The first contains only a constant variable and the second contains some
functions like conversion of float to string for the output at the
dialog and a file-chooser-dialog. The second file is not very long.

My statement for other comments:
I am not familiar with packaging. I only used the standard
quickly-commands ("share", "submitubuntu" and "package"). I don't know
how to solve this problems with dependencies because the  config-files
will be always overwritten when I am using the quickly-commands.

I worked very hard on this three weeks for creating my first app with
quickly and uploading my first app in Launchpad and I hope this app will
be a part of the Showdown, not be rejected and will appear in the Ubuntu
Software Center.

Please reply to me!

Kindest regards,
Marian Lux
