If someone wants to package cube (non-free), it's up to him/her. There are
lots of problems with it:
- Cube binaries are not available for every Debian architecture
- Users would be tied to the shared objects (.so files) it depends on
- It wouldn't be possible to keep it up to date with latest versions of the
libraries it depends on (including C++ transitions like the ones we've lived)
- It won't be possible for us to fix any possible bugs that appear
- It's not possible to audit the code for possible security holes
- It's quite difficult to find people in Debian intrested in packaging
non-free stuff, especially binary-only non-free stuff
Anyway it would be possible to make the notcube or freecube or whatever name
we give it in such a way that a possible cube debian package would be
compatible with it (like using a Provides: cube, or something like that).
