Default Enet update for Red Eclipse packaging, request for help

Hello, I'm in the process of packaging the game Red Eclipse[0] for
Fedora (bug #800930[1]), but in order for Red Eclipse to not bundle the
Enet lib, it needs to be updated from 1.2 to 1.3 in Fedora (bug #739313
[2]). There seems to currently be only one package depending on
enet/enet-devel in Fedora, which is egoboo, which does FTBFS on an
updated Enet (bug #799778[3]).

Updating the packaging for Enet to 1.3 seems to be trivial (bump
version, re-download, changelog), and I have created a patch for
Egoboo[3] which fixes the FTBFS and allows *launching*. I have not
tested *running* the game with the patch applied (would be great if
someone with graphics acceleration in Fedora could test .

The current maintainer of both Egoboo and Enet seems busy and has not
had time to update Enet since a request[2] was filed in Sep 2011. And
did, at least earlier, say that it would be fine if another proven
packager took care of it.

Also worth noting is that Egoboo is outdated in Fedora 2.7.5 vs upstream
2.8.1, however this update may introduce (if it's not already there) a
bad movement key bug[5], making it pretty much unplayable on Linux, and
I don't think there's a proper beta release for GNU/Linux beyond this..

I'd like to know how I'd best go about fixing Enet so that I may be able
to get Red Eclipse into Fedora, are there any proven packagers around
that may be willing to update Enet and add this patch to Egoboo?

Provenpackagers shouldn't just jump in to doing version updates without
at least trying to check in with the packager.

As it turns out I was looking at doing the same thing as one of the
first steps to clearing the way for 0 A.D. yesterday. I asked to be
a co-maintainer for egoboo, egoboo-data and enet with the express
purpose of update them to 2.8.1 and 1.3.3. I have been granted access
to egoboo and am still waiting to hear from the owner of enet.

Once I have access it will probably take about a week depending on
when I have free time to do this.

Thanks for the heads up about the bug. I hadn't noticed that. I did notice
there is some post 2.8.1 work, but not a release yet. It may be I can
cherry pick a fix out of that work.

I missed that. With that info I think I can go ahead and start working
on this before waiting for co-maintainer status. I'm a proven packager
so I have access to do updates while my request is pending.

Thanks again for doing the detailed background research on this.

Expect some movement in f17 and f18 by the end of next weekend. (I'll
do at least some work before then, but probably just seeing the
source files uploaded into the lookaside cache will be visible, while
I do some work locally.)

I'll want to be careful about pushing this stuff to f15 and f16.
Enet 1.3 is supposedly protocol compatible with 1.2 and I think
would be OK to backport. My main concern is not breaking egoboo.

Default Enet update for Red Eclipse packaging, request for help

Hi,
I think I'm getting towards the final stages of review of my Red Eclipse
package[0], and from what I can tell now is the time to find a
sponsor... right?

Hence I'm wondering if anyone from the games team would you perchance
be able to sponsor me for the Red Eclipse package?

Would you mind if I asked you, Bruno Wolff III, in particular, since
I've been involved with some of your work in the process?

I'm not a sponsor. I probably won't be one soon, since you really need to be good
at reviews to do that and I don't get much practice with that. I am more of a
fixer upper in what I do for packaging. I find that more fun and with my time being
pretty full, I am unlikely to make time to do enough reviews to be considered
as a sponsor for the foreseable future.

There are however, a few sponsors with a keen interest in getting games packaged
for Fedora.

I will state that from the interactions with Martin I have had over the last week,
is that he appears to be very knowlegable about licensing, catches important details
and is able to find information from upstreams readily.

If Bruno vouches for Martin, I'd be happy to sponsor him.

Based on what I have seen so far I think he is a good packager (probably better than
I am). There will be details that are different between Fedora and Debian to pick up,
but I don't think that will be a problem.

Thanks!
Is there anything more I should be doing as part of the sponsorship
process at this point?

That's high praise, thank you
