GNU Robots is a game/diversion where you construct a program for a
little robot, then watch him explore a world. The world is filled with
baddies that can hurt you, objects that you can bump into, and food
that you can eat. The goal of the game is to collect as many prizes as
possible before you are killed by a baddie or you run out of energy.
Programs for the robot are written in Scheme.

2013-05-20 - Frank Lichtenheld <>
gnurobots (2:1.2.0-5) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* Change maintainer to Debian QA Group.
* Import Ubuntu patches. (Closes: #707363, #641324, #660414)
But then:
+ Drop 00_fix_mips_FTBFS.patch and 03_disable_werror.patch in
favor of completely removing the CFLAGS setting in configure.
This allows debhelper/dpkg-buildflags to set it from debian/rules
But enforce setting -O0, since otherwise the built program doesn't
actually work (See #709102).
+ Drop 02_fix_deprecated_declarations.patch, it is not needed after dropping
-Werror and it forces a needless dependency on a >wheezy glib.
* debian/ cleanup:
+ bump debhelper compat to 9
+ use dh
+ use source format 3.0 (quilt)
+ remove obsolete VCS links
