I was told I think by Paul Wise that I needed to join the debian games
team and then update the repository for the source package 'conquest'. I
have now joined the debian games team but when i try to search to find it
on aloith I can not find it. I requested that there be some project space
on aloith for it but I have not heard anything back yet and now I'm unsure
if that was what I was meant to do.
So if someone could tell me what I'm meant to do.
Also if anyone interested in sponsoring me so I cam get the new version of
conquest into debian. At the end of this email is a copy of the orginal
RFS email I sent to the debian-mentors mailing list. I however can't
sign this email because I'm not on my own computer at home.
I am looking for a sponsor for my package "conquest".
* Package name : conquest
Version : 8.5-1
Upstream Author : Jon Trulson <email@example.com>
* URL : http://www.radscan.com/conquest.html
* License : Artistic License 2.0
Section : games
It builds these binary packages:
conquest - Predecessor of netrek. Named conquest. (ncurses client and
conquest-data - Predecessor of netrek. Named conquest . (data)
conquest-gl - Predecessor of netrek. Named conquest. (opengl client)
conquest-lib - Predecessor of netrek. Named conquest . (libs)
The package appears to be lintian clean.
My motivation for maintaining this package is: Wanting to help the debian
as a whole. Also now from playing the game and talking to the developer I
that not having an updated version of conquest in the debian repository is
for the debian project.
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/c/conquest
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
Note I have already published a RFS before but i repost it because it is a
new upstream release.
