- Consider adding a debian/watch file and a Homepage field to
- Scid is not exactly a game, so I think the executables should go to
/usr/bin (as they do currently), not /usr/games.
- It seems that texlive-games supersedes the tex-chess package, so it
would be good to suggest texlive-games | tex-chess rather than only
the latter. (Note who is listed as the maintainer of tex-chess, BTW.)
- You're suggesting phalanx, does analysis with phalanx work now? If
so, you should close bug #107658 with the upload.
Good luck in finding a sponsor! I would very much love to see scid
