RFS: Mupen64 -- Nintendo 64 emulator and plugins

Hello team,
I've packaged the mupen64 Nintendo 64 emulator and its associated plugins; I 
made an RFS on -mentors last year, but no one seemed interested. Mupen64 is 
compatible with a wide variety of games, and uses a plugin to provide 
graphics, sound, and the like.

This is the original ITP:

and this is the RFS:
* Package name    : mupen64
  Version         : 0.5.dfsg-1
  Upstream Author : Hacktarux <hacktarux@yahoo.fr>, many others
* URL             : http://mupen64.emulation64.com/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : Nintendo 64 emulator

 Mupen64 is an emulator for the Nintendo 64 game console. It features
 compatibility with a wide-range of commercial games, as well as most
 'demos.' Mupen uses a plugin system to provide video, sound, input,
 and RSP support -- many of these are available in Debian, and
 the user may install and use other plugins if they are preferred.

DFSG repackaging removes a plugin with ambiguous licensing.

There is also a mupen-video-glide64 (source: glide64) package that provides a 
3D accelerated video plugin, which should be uploaded along with Mupen64. The 
advanced Rice Video plugin was also recently open sourced, but I've not yet 
packaged it.

If you're interested, please take a look; source packages are mupen64 and 

I'm maintaining these myself, rather than in SVN, since it's not really 
complicated enough to need group work and upstream is very slow to make new 

pbuilder-clean packages available at:
