Re: Request to add 2048 command line game

Hi Chandra,

usually the best way to have something in Debian is to package it, and upload on mentors.debian.net, trying to find a sponsor for it,
otherwise if you don't have packaging skills you can ask for an RFP (request for packaging) [1]

Unfortunately the Debian community usually tries to avoid duplication of code/similar functionalities, and a similar game is already packaged at this moment [2]

do you think your game is worth an inclusion in the main repository?

[1] https://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/
[2] https://packages.qa.debian.org/2/2048-qt.html

(please don't be sad for this, having code duplication is worse for many reasons, if your game is better you might have a chance to see it included, otherwise likely not. Please also note that I'm not a Developer, so I won't be able to help you in any case, I'm just reporting what seems to be the best common pratice here)

Hey there, I've written the popular 2048 in cpp for the command line, is there a way I can add it to the official repositories ?
