I am willing to do most of the initial work, asking for help where needed. I think forking a project (even a small one like chess) is a big step. There are also potential repercussions in the reputation area. Which is why I would ask the original developer to see if he still considers chess finished before becoming upstream. But it also seems silly to be sharing out updates in the form of a src rpm (with patch files and scripts being run to update meshes), when a repository with an occasional tar ball would be easier for other people who want to keep using the program in other distributions with an up to date ogre. I am pretty close to asking Hans to be a comaintainer of ogre, ois and chess in devel anyway, because I want some movement there to help get dungeonhack packaged. I think the person who has been helping with this stuff recently is having some problems being able to test 3d (which I understand as my radeons just became usable for that) because of nVidia driver issues. _______________________________________________ Fedora-games-list mailing list Fedora-games-list@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-games-list
