Hi Marian

You're not out of the showdown, but these things need to be fixed in 
order for it to be included in software center:

The short and extended description both say "UNKNOWN"

The copyright file is invalid, it doesn't contain a valid link to a
copyright specification and there's a random xml tag "</property>" in

If you need any further assistance, please poke us on IRC or by mail.
