RFS: endless-sky/0.8.0-1 [ITP]

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

  Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "endless-sky". Endless Sky is a 2D space trading and combat game similar to the classic Escape Velocity series. The game has gone through three months of beta testing since my last email to this list, and I have now released a stable version. All packaging issues that were raised by the mentors the first time around have been fixed.

 * Package name    : endless-sky
   Version         : 0.8.0-1
   Upstream Author : Michael Zahniser <mzahniser@gmail.com>
 * URL             : https://endless-sky.github.io
 * License         : GPL-3+, CC-BY-SA-3.0, CC-BY-SA-4.0
   Section         : games

  It builds these binary packages:

    endless-sky - space exploration and combat game
    endless-sky-data - data files for Endless Sky

To access further information about this package, please visit the following URL:


  Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/e/endless-sky/endless-sky_0.8.0-1.dsc

More information about Endless Sky can be obtained from https://endless-sky.github.io.

  Changes since the first upload include:
  * Build system imports environment variables, e.g. for hardening.
  * Creative Commons licenses are now included.
  * Updated standards version to 3.9.6.
  * No longer requires SSE support.
  * Ran wrap-and-sort on the debian files.
  * Links switched from http to https whenever possible.
  * Added a README.sources giving a link to the artwork "sources."
  * Moved the source code files into a separate source/ directory.
  * Errors are now shown in a message box, not just the terminal.
  * Made the OpenGL 3.0 requirement explicit in the package description.
  * Addressed codespell, cppcheck, flawfinder, and scan-build warnings.
  * Dependencies now list multiple options for libpng and libjpeg-turbo.
