Hi Alexandre, I see you've got corsix-th as far as the NEW queue, congratulations and sorry for my unhelpful offer then silence - I struggle with actually getting started with development. I have also now learned how to subscribe to the BTS, as I didn't notice when you began the packaging in git. I attempted to rebuild the master branch for a local jessie backport, but the configure step failed to find libswresample  which is not in the libav port in jessie - upgrading to the [ffmpeg] provided packages in jessie-backports solved that problem. I've attached a patch that shouldn't affect sid, but forces the version number to match the ffmpeg packages - this seemed simpler than adding a compile-flag [WITH_LIBAV=ON] which would only be relevant to jessie, making backporting more complex. : https://github.com/CorsixTH/CorsixTH/issues/571 [ffmpeg]: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/ffmpeg [WITH_LIBAV=ON]: https://github.com/CorsixTH/CorsixTH/issues/154#issuecomment-140247412 Is this a reasonable (small) improvement that you would accept into the package, or do you have any other feedback? If so, am I ok to simply commit it to the pkg-games repo so it would be included in the next build after the current NEW has been accepted into the archives (presumably with the next corsix-th release)? -- Phil Morrell On 5 October 2015 at 03:22, Phil Morrell <email@example.com> wrote: > On 3 October 2015 at 21:39, Alexandre Detiste > <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: >> Please reply and CC email@example.com >> and quote this in full if you're ok with this. >> >> >> Le samedi 3 octobre 2015 21:10:53, vous avez écrit : >>> Hi, >>> >>> Would it be possible for me to help with the packaging of corsix-th (I >>> own the GOG version of the data files)?
