This is a text-based game common on (traditional) BSD systems.  It may
not be distributed freely, so it had to be broken off from the main
bsdgames package and placed in non-free.
This package now contains only rogue, the classic dungeon exploration game.

bsdgames-nonfree (2.17-8) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/compat: Advance to Debhelper 11 (from 9).
* debian/control:
- Bump debhelper requirement to (>= 11~) accordingly.
- B-D on libncurses-dev, not transitional libncurses5-dev.
- Repoint Vcs-* at salsa.
- Explicitly indicate that binary targets require (fake)root (because
the executable is setgid games).
- Standards-Version: 4.3.0 (compliant at this point).
* debian/copyright: Note my 2019 contributions.
* debian/{docs,rules}: Swap roles of ChangeLog and NEWS.
* debian/rules: Take advantage of /usr/share/dpkg/
2017-01-25 - Aaron M. Ucko <>
bsdgames-nonfree (2.17-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/control: Canonicalize with the help of cme fix.  In particular,
declare Standards-Version: 3.9.8 (already compliant, not that cme checked).
* debian/copyright: Canonicalize with the help of cme fix.
* debian/.gitignore: +debhelper-build-stamp.
2013-10-15 - Aaron M. Ucko <>
bsdgames-nonfree (2.17-6) unstable; urgency=low
* rogue/move.c (check_hunger): Achieve every-other-move effects correctly,
by consulting m_moves rather than rogue.moves_left.  (Closes: #726195.)
* Standards-Version: 3.9.4 (already compliant).
2012-12-06 - Aaron M. Ucko <>
bsdgames-nonfree (2.17-5) unstable; urgency=high
* rogue/init.c: Give the initial bow a damage value of 1d1 for
consistency with object.c; 1d2 was presumably a typo.
* rogue/{object.c,rogue.h,save.c}: factor an assign_damage function out
of gr_weapon, and call it from read_pack because saved values (raw
pointers to string constants) may be invalid.  (The setup was always
fragile, and broke altogether when 2.17-4 made the executable
position-independent and subject to loading at randomized addresses.)
(Closes: #695262.)
2012-06-27 - Aaron M. Ucko <>
bsdgames-nonfree (2.17-4) unstable; urgency=low
* config.params: defer to debian/rules for build flags (which weren't
set quite as intended in noopt mode anyway, per a longstanding typo).
* debian/compat: Advance to Debhelper 9.
* debian/control:
- Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 9), implying a new enough dpkg-dev.
- Depends: ${misc:Depends}, which debhelper could theoretically populate.
- Vcs-*: point to (new) personal repository on
- Retire conflict against ancient (pre-split) bsdgames.
- Standards-Version: 3.9.3 (now compliant).
* debian/copyright: clean up and convert to DEP5 format 1.0.
* debian/rules:
- Minimize further by switching to override_dh_* style.
- Pass in dpkg's recommended flags, including full hardening flags.
* (debian/).gitignore: ignore generated files.
2008-06-14 - Aaron M. Ucko <>
bsdgames-nonfree (2.17-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Migrate from CDBS to Debhelper 7.
* Explicitly note distinction between main and non-free in debian/copyright.
* Declare compliance with Policy 3.8.0.
2008-03-29 - Aaron M. Ucko <>
bsdgames-nonfree (2.17-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Convert to cdbs and debhelper 6.
* Note compliance with current policy (3.7.3).
* Set XS-Autobuild: yes, as the license isn't too severely non-free.
2005-02-18 - Aaron M. Ucko <>
bsdgames-nonfree (2.17-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* debian/menu: Properly double-quote command.
* debian/watch: Added, to help track future upstream versions.
2004-02-20 - Aaron M. Ucko <>
bsdgames-nonfree (2.16-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* debian/copyright: Update infrastructure copyright to cover 2004.
* debian/docs: drop (now covered by upstream build system).
2004-01-23 - Aaron M. Ucko <>
bsdgames-nonfree (2.15-2) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/postinst: Use POSIX-blessed chown syntax. (Closes: #229199)
* debian/rules: Tell vrms (and other interested parties) that the
license forbids commercial use.
