RFS: zsnes (ITA)


I am currently adopting[1] zsnes, an emulator for the Super Nintendo
Enternainment System (also known as the Super Famicom). This is the first
package I intend to maintain so I am glad to join Debian.

Vincent Fourmond <fourmond@debian.org> (former uploader of this package) advised
me to join the Games team. It seems a good idea to me as this is my first
package. I will be pleased to help with other packages.

I have prepared a new version of this package, numbered 1.510-3. It makes the
package lintian clean (both the source and the binary). The changes may be a bit
long to review as I converted the package to the new "3.0 (quilt)" format.

Eshat Cakar <info@eshat.de> helped me repackage this and he says is interested
in joining the team too.

You may see the packaging on Alioth[2] and github[3]. I uploaded the package on

Here is the changelog entry:
