IMHO (and that is in consent with current policy on Debian), if you really desperately need patched libraries either link them in statically or use rpath. If in any way possible avoid the need for patched libraries. Currently mostly only guichan needs to be patched, right? libpng needs some path for Ubuntu which AFAIR is some missuse of libpng's interface somewhere deep down the SWIG path and hardly findable.

X.Y.Z is fine. I'd suggest the following, which would be quite usefull as FIFE is used a bit like a library:

X -- changes for everything that is not backward-compatible (needs sourcechanbges for users)
Y -- every new item / addition
Z -- Bug fixes, stuff that doesn't change forward/backward compatiblility

x.y.z ftw - we are not Gentoo  ;D

Ah right, it's not just Ubuntu ;)

OK I can (hopefully) speak for the Ubuntu/Debian Folks. The follwowing things would be needed to create a package in a sane way:

  • A release tarball containing only free works, this includes artwork and documentation. We really would appreciate a copyright statement outside the wiki handling the whole (some python files have no headers and the only garant of license is in a world-editable wiki)
  • A build install target that lets us build fife working for system dirs and allows installation of the files to some place see
  • A way to link against system libraries, not use the embedded copies (security nightmare!) ideally a clean tarball
  • Ideally some hints it'll be maintainable (API should be rather stable!)

Hi Barra

As I said on IRC I would help out with GNU/Linux packaging. I'm more with the old-school release numbering and would use something like 0.02 or so but your idea is ok as well.
