fife is in rawhide (F-13) and I will try to add the strategy game "Unknown
Horizons" to F-13 :-)

FYI, I'm working on packages for PDCurses and ASCIIPortal, and will
submit them for review in the next day or so. If anyone else is doing
so as well, let's coordinate.

I just wanted to drop a note here to clarify today's FPC decision.
Rahul Sundaram asked the Fedora Packaging Committee to merge
SIGs/Games/Packaging into the Packaging namespace, but we declined to do
so for several reasons:
1. The page clearly describes the items as strong recommendations, not
requirements (thus, they really wouldn't be candidates for the Packaging
2. Several of the items (the license requirement, the group
requirement), if they were Guidelines, they would conflict with the
existing guidelines. Since they are currently just "strong
recommendations", there is no issue to leave them as is.
3. It was not clear that the Games SIG wanted this to occur.
If at some point in the future, the Games SIG wants to move these items
into the Packaging Guidelines as MUST items, please feel free to raise
the issue to the FPC at that time.
I was a bit worried about the games spin alpha build because of a problem
with livecd-tools and the openal-soft change. But I checked and there are
staged i686 and x86_64 games spin isos, so I think that will be OK.
glest got orphaned and needed immediate work to rebuild for openal-soft
and was in the middle of an update. I took over ownership of the devel
version (the 10 and 11 versions haven't been orphaned). I have a new build
out in rawhide, but it isn't tested yet.
I rearranged my hardware at home so that I can easily build rawhide games spins
and burn dvds on the same machine. This will help with testing as the machines
I have rawhide on don't have 3d support. (Not that the 3d support is great
on the machines I have F11 on either, but at least it sometimes works
on those machines.)
I haven't got anywhere with doing the test plan documentation. It's still
on my list of stuff to do. I'd like to get at least one done, as doing
a number of similar ones will probably be fairly easy once the first
one is done. But I don't expect to get finished before the F12 is released.
netpanzer and supertux still need to be rebuilt for the openal-soft change.
I'll be keeping an eye out on that and start bugging maintainers in about a
week if they are still pending.
At the WBC (a board gaming convention) I handed out 13 custom games spins based
off F11 + updates + updates-testing with a couple of foreign repos defined to
making adding in codecs in the like a bit easier. And I included colossus,
which plays the game (Titan) that I was running a tournament for at the
convention. I didn't get any feedback at the convention, but I try to ask
people I gave them to, next year who things worked.
