Package: games-thumbnails
Severity: wishlist

Hi,

I would like to suggest that you obtain the screenshots directly from
screenshots.debian.net to build the source of this package instead of
asking users to send screenshots via mail.  I'm really sure that you
will be able to find a way to set up a query to the database which is
running screenshots.debian.net which also has a simple json interface.
The screenshots might be reduced to the needed size afterwards.

The advantage of this procedure would be to make the way you provide
screenshots for Debian packages uniform and attractive for users.  Also
please make sure all screenshots gathered by the "GoPlay e-mail
interface" will be propagated to screenshots.debian.net.

If you think this wishlist bug makes sense but you might need some
help for realisation I'd volunteer to do so.

Kind regards

        Andreas.

Forgot to close the bug in the changelog :(
Version 20100826 now has a python-script to pull screenshots from
screenshots.d.n and resize them as needed.

Thanks for fixing this problem that quickly.  IMHO it is a nice move to
use and enhance Debian infrastructure and perhaps makes screenshots.d.n
more attractive.

Please make sure you also adapt the README and give the proper advise to
inject new screenshots via screenshots.debian.net.  Moreover I think
that the link to http://pkg-games.alioth.debian.org/thumbnails/ in the
README is not correct any more because the thumbnails are not maintained
there any more (at least they are not in sync with the current package
and I actually do not see any reason to keep this in sync any more).

Kind regards

       Andreas.

PS: I do not intend to reopen the bug because of the not yet updated
    README file because I guess this will be quickly done.  However, if
    this should serve as a reminder to not forget the issue reopening
    might make some sense.
