Hi, I've problem with deciding if it's better to have this great game splitted into two separate packages: package with data and package with game engine or if I should make one big package including both game data and engine. Now I'm maintaining it in two separate packages, but I still have problems with dependencies. Some users wrote me that it would be better to have data dependent on engine and some think exactly the opossite. How should I treat it? Thanks for any suggestion, Lukas "6xx" Jirkovsky
Well, since it's already splitted upstream, it seems perfectly natural to keep it that way. About the dep, I would just do like flightgear and glest in community already do. flightgear depends on flightgear-data and glest depends on glest-data. That seems to be the reverse of what you did.
