Suggested packages (and/or ITP with sponsor)

  Hi all.  I've found a couple of programs that I think someone should put
into Debian.  If no-one has by the time I complete the NM process (I think I
finally have concrete plans to get my key signed!), I'll upload them myself,
but there's no reason to wait :)

  First is the following game, which IMO is one of the best Linux games I've
seen recently.  It's cute, fast, and fun.  Also, upstream has already produced
debs -- the worst problem I had with them is that the menu entries are left
out, and the source package uses yada (??)  The license is GPL.

  The homepage of Heroes is http://www.realtech.scene.org/heroes/

Package: heroes
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: games
Installed-Size: 6335
Maintainer: Alexandre Duret-Lutz <duret_g@epita.fr>
Version: 0.4-1
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.2), libggi2 (>> 1:, libgii0 (>> 1:0.6), libmikmod2, libggi-target
Description: Heroes
 Heroes was a DOS game like nibble but with many enhancements. It can be
 played by one or two players. It features 12 original soundtracks, 94
 levels (in 10 different tilesets) plus a level editor. There are five game
 modes like Quest (the classical nibble), or Kill'em all (run over
 Presently the port is not complete, but the game is playable.  The main
 missing feature is the level editor.

  The other package is a BeOS theme for GTK+.  Of course, there are dozens
of these already, but this one is an engine theme, which means that (for
instance) it can be used without having a Pentium 400 and 128 MB of RAM :)
I've Debianized this one myself under the name "gtk-engines-begtk" and have the
diff available if anyone's interested.

  The GTK+ theme is available from themes.org:

  (I'm sure there's a nicer way to get that URL, but I don't know it :P )

  I believe that this theme also is under the GPL.

  My Debian package has the following control file:
Package: gtk-engines-begtk
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: unknown
Installed-Size: 41
Maintainer: Daniel Burrows <Daniel_Burrows@brown.edu>
Version: 1.0.0-1
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.2), libglib1.2 (>= 1.2.0), libgtk1.2 (>= 1.2.8-helix1), xlib6g (>= 3.3.6-4)
Description: BeOS-like theme for GTK+
 This package contains a BeOS 'theme' that allows you to configure
 the look of GTK+ 1.2-using programs.  The programs need no
 modifications to use themes; the support is built in to GTK+ 1.2.
