SweetSoy: Game Metadata

completed by: Anish Basu

mentors: Arc Riley

PySoy game links are received both from the web and xmpp game catelogs as .sgk files, which are .svg (Scaled Vector Graphics) with game metadata added. Because SVG is XML, the game metadata is ignored by standard SVG viewers allowing the files to be used verbatim as game icons.

Write a C function which parses out the metadata from a .sgk file including game name, author(s), genre, description, and server JID(s) and push it to our Mercurial repository.
