Re: Widelands Version Build-21 Released


thanks for the information. I updated and uploaded the Debian package.

It took me quite an amount of time because some of the files in the
archive are using the windows line ending. I did not notice, and it
broke my setting because the debian packaging involves comparing the
content of a git checkout (where git converts CRLF to LF) with the
content of the tar ball (where the CRLF remains untouched).

I'm just saying it here to save time for the packagers of other
distributions, in case it happens to them too.

Thanks to the contributors of widelands, this game is really good.

Bye, Mt.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the universe trying
to build bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.
