Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist

The classic game “Adventure” has an existing implementation in Debian,
and I am packaging another implementation (‘python-adventure’) which
hews closer to the original PDP-10 implementation's behaviour.

I have worked with the maintainer of the existing Debian package
‘bsdgames’, to make the name ‘/usr/games/adventure’ available via the
Debian alternatives system.

There are many existing implementations of Adventure, with different
choices made in details of implementation. I will be providing a
second implementation (in ‘colossal-cave-adventure’). We intend to use
the ‘adventure’ virtual package name, to declare providing an
implementation of the classic game Adventure.

   * Convert all remaining DebianDoc-SGML source files in the package to
     DocBook XML.  Many thanks to Osamu Aoki and Guillem Jover for lots of
     hard work on the conversion.  This was a huge conversion, so there
     will probably be some lingering formatting issues, incorrect markup,
     and less-than-ideal output.  Please report any problems as bugs.
     (Closes: #175064, #700532, #809382)
   * Additional fixes from Guillem Jover as part of the DocBook conversion:
     - Stop distributing the source SGML files as part of the installed
       package.  There doesn't seem to be any point in doing this.
     - Switch to xsltproc and dblatex instead of OpenJade.
     - Stop using tidy on the generated files since it generates larger
       files and the output from xsltproc is already compliant and fairly
     - Remove unused Build-Depends.
     - Use entities instead of literal <, >, and & characters.
     - Use <var> instead of escaped angle brackets for metavariables.
     - Use <var> instead of <em> inside <tt>.
     - Avoid slashes in section IDs.
     - Convert a comment about maintenance policy in the Menu Policy
       document to a regular paragraph in the document.
     - Replace a comment reference to the policy maintenance process with
       an actual link to Process.md.
     - Remove obsolete SGML comments.
   * Move the description of < and > relations to a footnote to make
     abundantly clear that they're no longer valid relation operators in
     dependencies.  (Closes: #816515)
   * Clarify informative mentions of debian/tmp in the appendices to
     document the now-common use of debian/<pkg> instead as the temporary
     staging area.  Document that convention, instead of
     debian/tmp-something, for multi-binary packages.  Thanks, Niels
     Thykier.  (Closes: #816249)
   * Remove lingering wording that implied that build-arch and build-indep
     targets are optional.  Thanks, Ferenc Wagner, Jakub Wilk, and Charles
     Plessy.  (Closes: #793999)
   * Rather than giving the paths to the installed shlibs and symbols files
     and then saying those paths shouldn't be used, just say to use
     dpkg-query --control-show.  Recommend --control-show instead of
     --control-path, since the latter is deprecated.  Patch from Salvatore
     Bonaccorso.  (Closes: #688220)
   * Explicitly give Unicode code points in the definition of the syntax of
     Debian control files and, where appropriate, show the character.
     Patch from Ben Finney.  (Closes: #821365)
   * Remove obsolete footnote about a versioned dependency on a
     liblockfile1 release from 1999.  Thanks, Jakub Wilk.  (Closes: #794902)
   * Fix the long name of the Common Public License in the copyright-format
     policy.  It is just Common Public License, with no leading "IBM".
     Thanks, Stefano Zacchiroli.  (Closes: #781654)
   * Fix the copyright-format examples to not have duplicate License
     paragraphs.  Thanks, Stefan <bd@bc-bd.org>.  (Closes: #824922)
   * Replace reference to dbus-launch in the autopkgtest documentation with
     dbus-run-session.  Patch from Simon McVittie.  (Closes: #835876)
   * Add an example of an architecture restriction in a dependency with
     multiple architectures separated by spaces.  (Closes: #734662)
   * Replace use of markdown with MultiMarkdown for the autopkgtest
     documentation and convert README and Process to MultiMarkdown, thus
     dropping the last org-mode files and the build dependency on Emacs.
     Patch from Guillem Jover.  (Closes: #849483)
   * Add some additional information to the upgrading-checklist entry for
     the release.
   * Fix debian/changelog and upgrading-checklist dates for the
     release to match the actual upload.  (Closes: #822059)
   * Fix duplicated "the" words in 4.4 and  Patch from Valentin
     Samir.  (Closes: #830989)
   * Clean up the upgrading checklist a bit:
     - Rewrite the introduction to read a bit more smoothly and mention
       that the Standards-Version value omits the minor patch number.
     - Remove the minor patch number from all the version headings except
       for the anomalies that contain normative changes, and note those
     - Remove some unhelpful section headings and trailing colons in very
       old upgrading checklist entries.
     - Standardize the release date format.
   * Compress all files with gzip -n to avoid embedding timestamps,
     enabling reproducible builds.
   * Redo some of the Makefile and debian/rules dependencies to avoid
     ambiguous pattern rules and to ensure that make at the top level
     rebuilds output files if input files change.
   * Switch to https URLs for Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser.
   * Use the same URL for both Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser, which now works
     fine and has some advantages over the gitweb version for Vcs-Browser.
     Thanks, Mattia Rizzolo.
   * Run wrap-and-sort -ast.
   * Tag as Multi-Arch: foreign (mostly to silence the hinter).
   [ Sean Whitton ]
   * Remove references to DebianDoc-SGML from README.md.
   * Fix typo & comma splice in Process.md.
