Hi Emmanuel,

Thank you for taking time to review the package.

The package 'wamerican' provides the /usr/share/dict/words file.
Listing that as a dependency is a must and I missed doing that. Also
the same package was reviewed in debian-mentors list and a few
issues/bug were found out. So I am in the process of fixing them and
making this game bug-free.

The 4digits package installs a game that implements a version of the
game involving numbers, this uses words instead of numbers.

Once I have fixed the issues in the package, I will bring it up for
review here again. I know that new packages are not accept during
freeze, but the intent of creating this package and uploading it to
debian mentors for review is to get valuable feedback on the package
so that it can be ready for the release after Squeeze.

Thanks again.

Thanks & Regards,
