  Description     : seahaven towers solitaire game

This is Seahaven Towers, a solitaire card game written for X11R4 and C++. With this program you can waste great amounts of time. As opposed to the common "solitare" which is actually Knondike, this game also requires some brain power in order to use it. This program also includes an "autoplay" button so you can see if the game can be solved and how to do it.

This is a classic program written by Terry Weissman and Charles Haynes.

I have a few open points to check on:
- the license: sounds DFSG free, but not 100% sure; Freshmeat and 
Sourceforge show it as being GPL, but neither the copyright notice in 
the README nor the files themselves show GPL anywhere

- the images: copyrights on them from an old spider game... might need 
to be replaced?

- upstream author: the two listed for the copyright below wrote it an 
eternity ago, http://freshmeat.net/projects/seahaven and sourceforge 
project page are owned by bill spitzak, I need to contact them. A few 
others have modified parts of the code to improve it.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of seahaventowers 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 seahaventowers, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 558322 ITP: seahaventowers -- seahaven towers solitaire game
 owner 558322 !
 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 <558322@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
