I've mentioned this before, but I'll do so again:
I've most "recently" been the one messing with AssaultCube in Debian
(updating it from upstream 1.0.4 to the current Debian version 18.104.22.168,
and some work beyond that). But I have since stopped actively poking at
it. For more info see my mail at
a related AC license discussion in
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-games/2012/10/msg00075.html + thread.
My impression is also that Gonéri (the reviewer/sponsor of my AC
changes) is also not actively maintaining the assaultcube package.
So, neither I, not do I suspect Gonéri (?) will be updating the
assaultcube package to the new upstream 1.2 anytime soon.
However, as mentioned in previous discussions, if anyone would be
interested in picking it up, I'd be very happy to help out with some of
the work. But I do not intend to drive it.
By the way, would it be relevant to orphan the assaultcube package
currently? What do you think Gonéri, and devel-games in general?
