Michael - thank you SO much for taking the time to upload this. I had
given up hope of sponsorship for the package, and you have restored my
faith in Debian!

I am now the release manager for Angband 3.3.0 which is scheduled for
release in mid-July. After it's done, I will take you up on your kind
offer of mentoring on the package split so that 3.3.0 can be uploaded as
two linked lintian-clean packages. (The problem is simply that I
inherited the packaging and do not fully understand Manoj's scripts. I
am reluctant to repackage from scratch, but would be willing to do so.)

Thanks both - I have already sort of joined the games team, including
attending the previous meeting and taking some actions (which I have
started but not completed). I will be able to join tomorrow's meeting at
around 11am UTC, but sadly will miss the beginning.

Many thanks again for reviving Angband in Debian,
