Games on Debian

See Game Page

Current status and general info

The goal of this page is to seek people who are interested to improve the state of games on Debian. Main place for games packaging happens within the Debian Games Team, on the official debian-games mailing lists, and the bugs and development list on alioth.

The debian-devel-games mailing list is a place for general games development discussions and contact with users, while the development list is the place for discussions about games' bugs and packages.

Debian Games official IRC channel is #debian-games on irc.debian.org (OFTC).

Informations for developers and prospective team members

People doing games packaging might find more useful information on the Games/Development page.

People who want to see some games in Debian should look at Games/Suggested and submit a request for package (RFP) bug report against the wnpp meta package.

Debtags was considered and Enrico Zini is open to new tags addition.

So using debtags, is a way to install cool games without looking at everything in the 'games' category which includes fortunes, bb etc. (which is cool also but maybe inappropriate ;)

Informations for sponsors

Debian Developers will find information at the Games/Sponsors page.

Goals

Players often want to start game servers temporarily; some games have a GUI option but an init.d frontend with parameters to allow non-root start/stop (i.e. not using var...) would be desired.
