Bug#643595: ITP: snes9x -- Cross-platform SNES emulator

Michael Moorman
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Michael Moorman <[hidden email]>

* Package name    : snes9x
  Version         : 1.53
  Upstream Author : Gary Henderson <[hidden email]>
* URL             : http://www.snes9x.com
* License         : Other
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : Cross-platform SNES emulator

The old snes9x package was removed (#617588) due to being orphaned, and not
being updated in over a year. However, a new upstream release has appeared since
then and I have begun packaging it.

The package seems to be non-free, and was listed in non-free previously.

The current free alternative in Debian is zsnes, but zsnes is also out-of-date
and furthermore is i386 only, whereas snes9x does not have this problem.

FYI: http://wiki.debian.org/debian/watch/

You could find the example watch file for google code site.
The watch file could be written like this,

version=3
http://code.google.com/p/snes9x-gtk/downloads/list?can=1 \
  .*/snes9x-(\d[\d.]*)-src\.tar\.bz2

Then, you could test the watch file with uscan,

$ uscan --report-status

Best regards,

Ah, thank you, that watch line you listed seems to work properly. I
uploaded this change to mentors now, and it seems to pass without any
warnings.

Thanks,
Michael

You're welcome. :)

I'm not thoroughly review your package but it seems that you bump the standard-versions in this upload to mentors.d.n without any logging in debian/changelog.
Hopefully, you already consult /usr/share/doc/debian-policy/upgrading-checklist.txt.gz and no changes needed.

Best regards,

I'll review the package later and suggest further changes. There are
some spelling errors in the debian/control file, the debhelper version
should be bumped to 9 and so on.

Cheers,

Adrian
