xsok is a single player strategic game, a superset of the
well-known Sokoban game.
The target of Sokoban is to push all the objects into the
score area of each level using the mouse or the arrow
keys. For the other level subsets, there are different
kinds of objects, and special effect squares.

xsok (1.02-17) unstable; urgency=low
* Policy 3.8.0: move /usr/X11R6/lib to /usr/lib.
* Build-Depends: xutils-dev.  (Closes: #485726)
* Fix 'debian/rules clean' lintian warning.
* Update 'debian/copyright' a bit, thanks again to lintian.
2006-02-07 - Peter Samuelson <peter@p12n.org>
xsok (1.02-16) unstable; urgency=medium
* patch 10_lots_of_stuff: break into logical patches.
- build_tweaks, config, manpage, overflow
* new patch no_gunzip: rip out the gunzip support.
This had a fragile security patch in it - there were two code paths
selected by a define in the Imakefile, and only one was fixed.
- patch 20_gunzip_exploit_fix deleted, as it is obsolete
* new patch wm_delete: support ICCCM, or at least WM_DELETE_WINDOW.
Thanks to Peter de Wachter <pdewacht@vub.ac.be> for the patch.
(Closes: #288143)
* new patch security_paranoia: fix/remove various uses of strcpy/sprintf.
Most of these aren't exploitable, but some might be.
* new patch undo_nowrap: prevent "undo" command from wrapping around
to the end of the game.  This behavior was clearly intentional, but
it's counterintuitive and undocumented.  (Closes: #288142)
* new patch drag_segfault: prevent segfault when trying to drag the
player with button 2.  (Closes: #318617)
* patch build_tweaks:
- disable ifdef for HPArchitecture.  Obviously they mean HP-UX; we
don't want that stuff for Debian hppa.
- remove -O2 from CCOPTIONS, to enable DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=noopt.
- fix 3 gcc warnings.  All harmless, except one on 64-bit BE,
which Debian doesn't have for this package.
* debian/rules: support DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nostrip,noopt.
* debian/rules:
- Remove kludge around Bug #319121, it's fixed now.
- In the same vein, override $(LOCAL_LIBRARIES) to avoid linking
extraneous X libraries.
- debian/control: Trim Build-Depends accordingly.
* debian/docs: don't ship README, it's not really relevant to Debian.

xsok (1.02-15) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer.  (Closes: #242100)
* Bump standards version to 3.6.2 (no changes).
* debian/rules: use debhelper 4, remove random dh_* cruft.
* debian/rules: small cleanups; use DESTDIR for readability.
* Do not install COPYRIGHT.* in /usr/share/doc.  These are all covered
by 'copyright'.
* debian/rules: hacks to "fix" what imake spits out:
- do not link to libselinux (see #319121)
- do not link to libXp
* debian/control: kill xlibs-dev in favor of the real dev packages.
* debian/patches/11_manpage: .TH section 6x, not 6.
* debian/copyright: FSF moved again.
