Re: Orphaned clanlib package

Maybe I'm not explaining myself. The package *is* maintained and is in
the Games Team SVN and is pretty much ready to upload. If you upload
it, you immediately break clanbomber and epiphany. (Though I'm trying to
build epiphany 0.7.0 right now which does not use clanlib). You still
have clanbomber to worry about. Someone is either going to have to fix
clanbomber to work with clanlib 0.8 or package up clanbomber2 (And I
haven't investigated enough yet to know if it is just a re-write without
clanlib or if it is a different game altogether).

I'm searching for a new maintainer for the orphaned package clanlib.
Here are some informations about the package:
Upstream Version: 0.8
Maintainer Version: 0.6.5-1-4
I need this package maintained and in version 0.8, because I want to

I think I haven't got enough experience yet to maintain such a
package, maybe later, but not at the moment.
So hopefully someone will adopt it. :)
FWIW Sam already packaged the new upstream version  inside the
games team (CC'ed), but didn't upload it yet since it would break
rdepends. Any news here?
Mit freundlichem Gruß / With kind regards,
Right now both clanbomber and epiphany use clanlib. I have tried to
build both of them with 0.8 without much success. I know there is a
clanbomber2 available that doesn't use clanlib but not sure about
epiphany. You are certainly welcome to help get clanbomber and/or
epiphany working with 0.8. :-) I'll even post the new clanlib
somewhere for you if you wish.
But I think this is a wrong solution.
We're talking about a package, which will be delivered to unstable.
It's for testing etc.
I think there are more than the package trophy that are waiting for
And I think this topic hasn't got any discussion topic, because it's
currently simply "unmaintained".
I've added my sponsor Michael Koch to CC, because maybe he thinks I
could maintain this or not and maybe he knows any solution for this
