Subject: ITP: glulxe - an interpreter for text adventures
Date: Mon, 16 Jun 2008 00:07:10 +0200
Package: wnpp
Version: 0.4.3-1

glulxe is an interpreter for Text Adventures. It is an implementation of
the glulx Virtual Machine (VM) which was specifically designed for the
needs of Interactive Fiction (a.k.a. Text Adventures). Games that ship
in the form of runtime-code for the glulx VM can be run with any
standard conforming glulx interpreter, e.g. with glulxe. Code for the
glulx VM can be produced e.g. with the Inform compiler.

I have drafted some Debian packages:
http://www.wolldingwacht.de/if/debian/glulxe/

As a dependency, glulxe needs the glkterm library. I have drafted some
Debian packages for the glkterm library too:
http://www.wolldingwacht.de/if/debian/libglkterm/
The ITP for the glkterm library is filed in a seperate bug report.

IANADD, so I am looking for a DD as a sponsor.

The packages above are designed for 'Lenny'.

Hi Peer,

I have some interest for glulxe (see #338476 and its friends, where I
pretty much overdid the packaging), thanks for your effort in getting
it into Debian.

The packages look OK at first sight, but I'll take a closer look when
I have more time. Please consider using 'libglkterm-dev' instead of
'libglkterm0-dev' - even if there's going to be a new API version at
some point, there are so few packages using the library that having both
the old and the new -dev package installable at the same time is most
probably unnecessary.

I'll try to get back to you on this in a few days.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of glulxe back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 18 months.

If you are still interested in adopting glulxe, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 486409 ITP: glulxe -- an interpreter for text adventures
 owner 486409 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <486409@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
