RFS: play.it/2.9.0-1 [ITP]

Hi Games Team,

Is anyone willing to sponsor this new package for me? I've uploaded it
to mentors: https://mentors.debian.net/package/play.it

Essentially, it's most like game-data-packager in its design, but for
the original engines, often wrapped in a multi-user wineprefix.

* Package name    : play.it
  Version         : 2.7.5
  Upstream Author : Antoine Le Gonidec <vv221@dotslashplay.it>
* URL             : https://www.dotslashplay.it/
* License         : BSD-2-Clause
  Programming Lang: Shell
  Section         : contrib/games
  Description     : Installer for drm-free commercial games

The ./play.it tool builds .deb and .pkg packages from installers for Windows
or Linux, mainly those sold by GOG and Humble Bundle. The goal is that a game
installed via ./play.it is indistinguishable from a game installed via the
official repositories of your favorite distribution.
The games are installed globally on multi-user systems, avoiding unnecessary
duplication. The locations of save games, settings, mods, temporary files and
backups are standardized with XDG Base Directory support.
Packaging the games simplifies future updates, uninstalls and handling of any
necessary dependencies, including integrated obsolete dependencies if specific
versions are needed.


Similar packages:
