Return to Castle Wolfenstein is a military- and occult-themed first-person
shooter game in a Second World War setting, originally released in 2001.
It is a sequel to Wolfenstein 3D, which is also available for Debian
(in the wolf4sdl package).
This package contains files shared by the game and the dedicated server.
It requires non-distributable game data files from the rtcw-data package,
which can be prepared using the game-data-packager tool.

iortcw (1.50a+dfsg1-3+deb9u1) stretch-security; urgency=medium
* d/p/security/All-Fix-improve-buffer-overflow-in-MSG_ReadBits-MSG_Write.patch:
Add patch (from ioquake3 via upstream) to fix a read buffer overflow
in MSG_ReadBits (CVE-2017-11721)
2017-03-14 - Simon McVittie <smcv@debian.org>
iortcw (1.50a+dfsg1-3) unstable; urgency=high
* d/gbp.conf: switch branch to debian/stretch for updates during freeze
* d/patches: Add patches from upstream fixing security vulnerabilities
- refuse to load potentially auto-downloadable .pk3 files as
iortcw renderers, iortcw game code, libcurl, or OpenAL drivers
(mitigation: auto-downloading is off by default, and in Debian
we do not dlopen libcurl anyway)
- refuse to load default configuration file names from a .pk3 file
- protect cl_renderer, cl_curllib, s_aldriver configuration variables so
game code cannot set them
- refuse to overwrite files other than *.txt with the dump console
- refuse to overwrite files other than *.cfg with the writeconfig
console command
(Closes: #857714)

iortcw (1.50a+dfsg1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Drop unused libspeexdsp-dev build-dependency
(VoIP is now done using the Opus codec)
* debian/watch: strip +dfsg1 suffix when comparing versions even if
working from a release and not a datestamped snapshot
* debian/apparmor.d: allow more forms of device enumeration
2016-11-20 - Simon McVittie <smcv@debian.org>
iortcw (1.50a+dfsg1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release 1.5a, represented as 1.50a here to make it
sort in the intended order
- drop patches that were merged upstream
- debian/copyright: update
* d/p/Don-t-require-.git-index-to-exist.patch: Fix FTBFS when
.git/index doesn't exist
2016-11-05 - Simon McVittie <smcv@debian.org>
iortcw (1.42d+dfsg1-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix date(1) syntax when using SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH
* Mark patches as applied upstream or Debian-specific, as
* Always do a "release" build. Override OPTIMIZE to empty instead of
using upstream's "debug" build for noopt.
* Use upstream's copyfiles (install) target instead of reimplementing it
* Write generated scripts directly into debian/tmp/usr/games
* Add missing dependency on lsb-base, detected by lintian
* Sync AppArmor profile with ioquake3
2016-09-21 - Simon McVittie <smcv@debian.org>
iortcw (1.42d+dfsg1-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Normalize packaging via wrap-and-sort -abst
* debian/gbp.conf: use DEP-14 branch names debian/master, upstream/latest
* Remove rtcw-dbg binary package and rely on automatic dbgsym packages
* debian/rules: improve get-orig-source target
* Bump debhelper compat level to 10
- don't explicitly use dh-systemd, it is now integrated
- don't explicitly do a parallel build, it is the default
* debian/rules: align with ioquake3's (cosmetic changes only)
2016-07-17 - Simon McVittie <smcv@debian.org>
iortcw (1.42d+dfsg1-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Standards-Version: 3.9.8 (no changes required)
* d/rules: remove misleading leftover comment
* Upload to unstable
2016-03-21 - Simon McVittie <smcv@debian.org>
iortcw (1.42d+dfsg1-2) experimental; urgency=medium
* apparmor: add a child profile for the "safe mode" popups (tested
with xmessage and zenity - kdialog will probably need more rules)
* apparmor: don't try to run dh_apparmor on non-Linux ports
* apparmor: #include the local snippets created by dh_apparmor
* Add patch to replace __DATE__ with $SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH if set;
that variable is set automatically by recent debhelper
* Add Documentation key to the systemd services
* Add a patch fixing some spelling mistakes in user-visible messages
(but not "persistant", which is unfortunately part of the API)
* Enable full compiler hardening
