Re: AstroMenace and wheezy-backports

Hi team,

We had a discussion with Dmitry. And now we need more opinions.

I have doubts as well. That's why I am asking.

BTW, which costs do you have in mind? From maintainer point of view: game does
not depend on newest versions of libraries, so its backporting does not
require much time.

Yes, but this game is not available for wheezy users. Package was uploaded
recently and its popularity is growing each day [1].

Yes, I see very few games there [2][3].

Any thoughts about usefulness/uselessness of astromenace game in the
wheezy-backports are welcome.
