The goal of this page is to seek people who are interested to improve the state of games on Debian. As the debian-games mailing list doesn't exist anymore, people might now gather here.

Tasks

 - the ["ParaGUI"] package is at 1.0

However many games use 1.1, so a package with the new API should be created and the old one phased out (see #316335). Both ["ParaGUI"] and SDL need updated m4 macros (basically the underquoting issues), I think that both have been fixed upstream already.

 - the GGZ packages are vastly outdated

A jump from 0.0.7 to 0.0.11 would help especially game developers whose games conditionally depend on GGZ libraries.

 - Pygame needs an update

First, it should be recompiled with Python 2.4 to produce the python2.4-pygame packages (ubuntu already did this). Second, the version 1.7 should be included, although this seems to be less of a priority.
