Package: wnpp

I'm considering packaging dpmaster, to go with Debian's Quake 1 and Quake 3
engines. I'd maintain this package within the Debian Games Team.

If considered useful, I might also run an instance of it as an unofficial
Debian service (by pointing dpmaster.debian.net at my own server), and
configure Debian's darkplaces and ioquake3 engines to use that service in
parallel with the upstream-recommended defaults (they can use any number
of master servers, and will take the union of the results).

* Package name    : dpmaster
  Version         : 2.2
  Upstream Author : Mathieu Olivier <molivier, at users.sourceforge.net>
* URL             : http://icculus.org/twilight/darkplaces/
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: C (+ Perl for the regression tests)
  Description     : master server (public server list) for Quake-related games

Quake III Arena, and many similar games, discover public servers by sending
a query to one or more "master servers", which lists all servers that have been
configured to send a "heartbeat" to that same master server.

dpmaster is a lightweight master server implementation, written from scratch
for DarkPlaces. It uses an open protocol based on the one from Quake III
Arena, in which new games can advertise themselves on an existing master
server without changes to the master server.

Games natively supporting the DarkPlaces master server protocol include those
derived from DarkPlaces (including Nexuiz, Xonotic and Transfusion), QFusion
(including Warsow), FTE QuakeWorld, and recent versions of ioQuake3.

In addition to its own protocol, dpmaster also supports the master protocols
used by Quake III Arena, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and Wolfenstein:
Enemy Territory. Standalone games using the Quake III Arena engine, such as
OpenArena, World of Padman, Smokin' Guns and Urban Terror, are also supported.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of dpmaster back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

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

 retitle 636070 ITP: dpmaster -- master server (public server list) for Quake-related games
 owner 636070 !
 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 <636070@bugs.debian.org>.

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