Bug Description

This Feature Freeze exception regards separately downloaded and specifically negotiated public domain data-files to go with the 'OpenBVE' rail simulator, which is already in Universe. The proposed packages have been uploaded to:

  http://revu.ubuntuwire.com/p/bve-route-cross-city-south
  http://revu.ubuntuwire.com/p/bve-train-br-class-323

The original needs-packaging is bug #331188, which groups the four .debs:

  openbve (Simulator engine/game engine)
  openbve-data (Support files; icons, languages, ...)

  bve-route-cross-city-south (Negotiated separately as a PD release)
  bve-train-br-class-323 (Negotiated separately again, also under PD)

The game engine and its support files were uploaded in February and accepted into Universe, immediately before Feature Freeze. The route/train packages did not get uploaded at the same time because of the circumstances:

  * Last minute negotiation over public domain releases (and non-free cleansing by upstreams)
  * Large .orig upload size (~30 MB) combined, not possible over unreliable GPRS access at the time

In the meantime, the game engine has gone 1.0, with a series of small bugfix releases. This 1.0 release fixed bugs and reduced the patch delta between the Ubuntu .deb and upstream and thus 1.0.2.0 is now in the archive.

The train/route packages both contain *no executable code*. There is *no direct dependency* between the packages, meaning that there should be a low risk of package/build issues this close to release. The game engine, route and train package are related based a:

  Provides/Recommends: bve-engine, bve-train, bve-route

relationship combination to allow single-click GUI installation of all of the jigsaw pieces (if available).

Currently there are no other BVE {train,route} files in the archive. The packages have undergone several hours ...testing.

hm... you'll need to convince (and/or bribe) an archive admin to do the new processing.

I think it'd be a good idea to get it in, otherwise openbve is not really playable. Take this as ACK from me, but only if you can convince an archive admin.

handler/sistpoty: ta for that.

I've uploaded fresh packages, along with debian/copyright tweaks per Maulkin's suggestions wrt to Debian acceptance.

debian/changelogs for the two data-only packages.

bve-train-br-class-323 (4.0.1809-0ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * This package will probably be modularised in future to produce
    multiple binary packages, once the extent of overlap with other
    trains/route data is understood.
  * Initial release (LP: #331188) (LP: #356615)
  * Recode .wav files to Ogg Vorbis to save space. Inline rename
    them (as .wav) for the moment as some filenames are hardcoded.
  * Rename source-package-name to match binary-package-name
  * Include pseudo 'watch' file

bve-route-cross-city-south (1.31.03-0ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * This package can be modularised to produce multiple binary
    packages once the extent of overlap with other trains/route data
    is understood.
  * Initial release (LP: #331188) (LP: #356615)
  * Replace spaces in filenames with underscores
  * Set the suggested train to 'BR_Class_323' to match with where
    'bve-train-br-class-323' installs to.
  * Request lzma compression from dh_builddeb
  * Symlink duplicate models/textures together
  * Add a known-issues.txt file and add to docs.
  * Recode the huge .wav audio files to .ogg to save 90% size.
  * Rename source-package-name to match binary-package-name
  * Include pseudo 'watch' file

Transfer priority to individual packages as it is not possible to overwrite Package name to non-processed package (Launchpad itself bug #359970) and not possible to save all drop-downs at once (Launchpad itself bug #359972).
