  Description     : Mupen64Plus 2.0 GUI frontend written using wxWidgets

I wanted to use mupen64plus, but the version in sid doesn't have a gui. I was
informed that wxmupen64plus is currently the only good one (the rest seem to
be more hacks or only launcher applications).

The upstream project is already dead. Here a quote from the maintainer

{Saturday, October 26, 2013} [21:14:27] <Auria> I don't really have time/interest anymore to properly develop wxMupen64Plus, unfortunately.


It wasn't working since a while with the mupen64plus version in debian and the author started to to make it incompatible with mupen64plus 2.0 by purpose in the past by making it mupen64plus 1.99.5 exclusive. It is most likely better to just close this bug and move on to m64py [1].

I've already saw m64py packages on git.debian.org (server seems to be down right now) and it only needs pysdl2 packaged in Debian.

In the light of this, it doesn't seem sensible to keep this RFP open.
Packaging something which is already dead upstream is rarely a good
idea.

If someone takes over upstream development, we can just reopen this
bug.

Cheers,
