Bug#785658: O: xscavenger -- A lode-runner-like platform game for X

David Ashley
Package: wnpp

I am the original author for the game and have tried to contact the
maintainer (Hwei Sheng Teoh [hidden email]) multiple times to
notify him of sound related bugfixes that are available for
longstanding issues (on the order of 10 years old).

I'd like the package to become orphaned. Possibly someone else will
step up to maintain it. Otherwise I am willing to maintain it myself.

CUT CUT CUT The text below was cut and pasted from another similiar bug entry...

Maintaining a package requires time and skills. Please only adopt this
package if you will have enough time and attention to work on it.

If you want to be the new maintainer, please see
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/index.html#howto-o for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Description-en: Lode-runner-like platform game for X
 XScavenger is a platform game for the X Window System. From the README:
 .
 Scavenger is like Lode Runner. You've got to run around gathering objects
 while avoiding enemies. You can dig down through some of the blocks to get
 at buried objects. After you've collected everything, ladders may appear.
 To finish the level you've got to exit through the top of the screen. If
 an enemy falls into a dug brick, he is stunned for a while. If the brick
 fills in with him in it, he is killed, and he will reappear at the top of
 the screen.
 .
 This version has a level editor for designing your own levels, and a
 graphics editor for drawing your own artwork.

AFAIK the proper way to get the package orphaned is to report the maintainer as "missing in action" ( see https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/MIA ), e.g. by mailing the MIA team. I've put them on CC for this mail.


Kind regards,

Erik Brangs

Right now I'm not seeing any relevant bug open against the package,
which should be the main point of contact for requests about a package.
Did you open any bug that got wrongly closed or something?

Exactly. And the maintainer is obviously active as he did an upload
last month:
https://packages.qa.debian.org/x/xscavenger/news/20170216T192022Z.html

And that's not the first one since this bug report was filed.

If that's not the case, please file one bug report per issue as proper
bug reports against xscavenger instead of mailing the maintainer
directly. Direct mails can get forgotten or lost. Proper bug reports
to the Bug Tracking System don't get lost. From this (IMHO
inappropriate) bug report it's totally unclear what the actual issues
are, so even reassigning it against xscavenger wouldn't really help.

Cc'ing Hwei Sheng Teoh to make him aware of this bug report.

                Regards, Axel
