Can you guys chip in and do a mini-vote thing? We already lost track
of this once so I am going to create the list soonish.
I like the play@ I must admit.
vcs-pkg.org was started for this very purpose.
It is a tad Debian- and git-centric (not saying that is bad, just noting
it), but this might be a good place to:
1) keep common patchsets that can be applied over upstream
2) create new upstream sites where original upstream is dead
I believe 2 is the best to do, because then we don't need buy in from other
distro's. They will sooner or later notice, or be noticed by their users that a
new upstream release is out, that way we can share our work without having to
actively push it. And who knows, people from all places including dyi builds of
the games might go sending in patches.
This also takes away some of the security concerns. As consuming an upstream
tarbal with the risk of it containing something nasty is part of the usual
processes for a distro.
