  Description     : Card game about avoiding having to take tricks

Heart (also known as Hearts) is a popular card game for four players
with the aim of gaining as few points as possible. The game is played
over several rounds until one or more players reach 100 points.
In my implementation a single human player plays against 3 computer players.

There used to be a similar game in the Debian and Ubuntu repos,
but it was removed long ago due (iirc) to being defunctional.
This is a reasonably well-known, small-ish game concept that is
a great way of wasting time, so having a Hearts-like game in
the repos again would be much appreciated.

I added a basic, functional debian packaging dir to my lightweight
Java-based Heart implementation (see GitHub link above).
I am also prepared to perform all maintenance that may be
needed for this package in the future.

I would be honored if my game were accepted into the official repos.

Best regards,
Benedikt Straub
