I might be interested under the pkg-games umbrella.
I'll come back to you later :)

Subject: License Issues

Bad news everyone. Dolphin Emu has license issues that make it
non-distributable in its current form.

1) wiiuse is GPLv3+, but the rest of Dolphin is GPLv2 only.
Fortunately, wiiuse can be removed, or we might be able to make use of
the LGPLv3-noncommercial license that wiiuse also provides. The
upstream wiiuse author might be willing to add another license
exception to allow GPLv2, or otherwise free programs, to link with
wiiuse.

2) As I understand it, Debian requires that GPL programs that link
against non-free libraries have a license exception that specifically
allows them to link against those non-free libraries. Dolphin links
against nvidia-cg-toolkit libraries. I don't think we can just remove
that code. We'll need to get permission from upstream authors to link
against non-free libraries, and, as I understand it,  we'll need to get
permission from all of them. Alternatively, we might be able to replace
nvidia-cg-toolkit with something free, which is something I had been
looking into before I knew that there were serious problems putting
dolphin into contrib.

I could use some help negotiating between the various parties.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of dolphin-emu back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

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

 retitle 535073 ITP: dolphin-emu -- Dolphin Gamecube / Wii Emulator
 owner 535073 !
 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 <535073@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

The license issues I mentioned above have been resolved, and I would
again like to build and maintain this package for Debian. Glenn Rice,
who has been packaging dolphin as an Ubuntu PPA for the last 2 years,
has offered to help.

The current version of Dolphin uses wxWidgets 2.9, which is a
development release not available in Debian. That package was requested
2 years ago, and hopefully we'll come up with a solution to bring that
and Dolphin to the Debian repositories.

This is an update.

I've been submitting packages to mentors. I've just submitted a Debian
package of the recently released version 4.0:

Olly just submitted wxwidgets 2.9 to NEW. It should appear in
experimental soon. I've been using Glenn's wxwidgets Ubuntu PPA
