[RFC] New release of PySol FC

Hi all!

Some other people and I have been maintaining a GitHub fork of PySol FC

* Support for dealing higher-seed MS Freecell/FC-Pro layouts as well as old
PySol layouts.

2. The Debian and derivatives' packages were patched downstream to accept
cardset themes with some files removed.

3. I wish there was a way to assume maint on the SF.net project, but last time
I checked I was told this functionality was removed (so much for not being


Should we just go for it?
