Gejengel considered ready for pre alpha testing

I think the project has reached a stage where it is ready for testing by people who are interested. Currently the only possibility is to build the project from subversion.

To build from subversion run the following commands:

svn checkout http://gejengel.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ gejengel
cd gejengel
sudo make install
