Thanks for working on free software games. This topic regularly comes up on
various mailing lists. In general it is possible to include ksokoban-qt in
Debian, provided it is truly free. It is difficult though to find someone who
wants to package and maintain a random piece of software. If you have prepared
a Debian package already, then I would rather suggest you go all the way and
upload it to mentors.debian.org and let others review your work there. [1]
Otherwise you could also file a so called RFP (request for packaging) bug
report. [2] Sometimes someone else decides to work on it then but if you want
to get more experience in Debian packaging, then I highly recommend to go the
Debian mentors route.
