Good, I'll do that then. :-)

I've just prepared a new upload for pioneers.  Should I put this list as
maintainer (and myself as co-maintainer)?  I saw that's how it was done for
komi, at least.

I am part of upstream for it, and the debian directory is in upstream cvs (but
not in the distribution tarballs).  Because of this, I usually don't need to
make any change outside debian/.  I guess I should only import debian/* into
svn then, right?

The other game I maintain is GFingerPoken.  When I adopted it, it needed some
work.  The original author has been inactive since 2000, so I took over
upstream (with his consent).  I changed some things, and now there's really
only one thing left to change IMO, which is moving the thing from Gtk1 to
Gtk2.  However, when I tried this I found that quite a bit harder than I
expected.  It's about as much work as rewriting the whole thing from scratch,
and if I'm going to write something from scratch, I prefer to write something
new. :-)  But I anyone here wants to try, let me know and I can tell you what
the problems are.

Anyway, Since there isn't really any activity upstream, there'll be no new
uploads, and I think it'd be a bad idea to do an upload just to change the
maintainer.  But I'll do it when/if there will be an upload for it.

I think we shouldn't have patches in svn.  If there's stuff to patch, put the
full source in svn.  If there isn't, put only debian/ (which is what I think
I should do for pioneers).
