Re: Uplink release with Debian


I've had a third party Uplink Debian package available -
The package itself is just an installer, but it can install the demo, or
off the Uplink CD, and patch an installed copy. I emailed Chris Delay
about it a while ago, and posted it to the forums, but it never got
linked off the download page or "Other Files" section.

No matter what you do, Debian isn't going to include Uplink, because
it's not DFSG-free software ("open source"). On the other hand, Cc:ing
-devel in case one of the official developers wants to hammer my work
into something suitable for contrib (a non-official part of Debian that
many users of Debian get packages from).
