Re: allegro4.4-dev package please ?

I started the process of renaming that package now [1]. There are five
packages with versioned build dependencies on liballegro4.2-dev that
have to be changed: alex4 and the remaining four packages of the defunct
Allegro packaging team/Sam Hocevar [2]: libdumb, overgod, rafkill and
wing. I'll take over libdumb and orphan the remaining packages while
changing the build dependency. Except if there's someone who wants to
keep maintaining them in the Games Team. Anyone? Allegro has already
been orphaned two years ago, when it had the same inactive maintainer [3].
