I'm using springlobby 0.23 with a lot of success and no particular
crashes. When I'll package that one too I'll tell on the debian-games
mailing list; are you subscribed?

In that case the package should be split in 3 since probably they need
to share a lot of common data.

After having a random gamer packaging that works I think that having
spads or a more fined control over packagein could be desired,
meanwhile my target is to have the engine, the lobby, some mods and
some maps in sid ASAP, this game really rocks.
