Re: [ITP] FreeCiv 1.12.0 for X

Yes, you really should be subscribed to the XFree86 mailing list if you
are ITP'ing a package for X. However, since ghostscript was a switch
hitter, apparently it was ok for it to get approved here. I believe
Freeciv has an ncurses version, so I'm not real sure what the protocol
would be on this. Should do an ITP on cygwin-xfree as well?
Will there be two FreeCiv's or just one? If there's only a single
binary, and it's X-based PLUS ncurses based, then I would consider it an
X app; it should be discussed on cygwin-xfree.
If there are two binaries (and X version and a separate ncurses version)
that can each be installed independently of the other -- with perhaps a
third "common" package that each depends on -- then I'd probably
two-track it. Post to both cygwin-apps and cygwin-xfree.
Or, release it in stages: first the non-X version, thru cygwin-apps.
Then later the X- version, which should probably be discussed on both
cygwin-apps and cygwin-xfree. (Yeah, ghostscript-X should've been cc:ed
to cygwin-xfree, probably).
if it is solely X-based, or if the maintainer is only going to release
an X version, then stay strictly on cygwin-xfree.
