Debian Games Team is looking for new members
« on: September 20, 2013, 12:15:59 pm »
Hi folks,

I'm a member of the Debian/Ubuntu Games Team and we are constantly looking for new people who'd like to help us improving and packaging FOSS games like UFO:AI. As some of you probably know, I'm working on an official release for UFO:AI at the moment. http://ufoai.org/forum/index.php/topic,7822.0.html

Short summary:

Quote
The Debian/Ubuntu Games Team provides packaging and support of games in Debian and Ubuntu archives. From RPGs, FPS's and RTS's to flight sims, board games and art games, we work collaboratively to share problems, bugfix, package and promote FOSS games in all genres and we seek new members to assist us in our work. We have roles for all technical levels. From producing screenshots and documentation, building packages of existing games, tracking down new and interesting games for inclusion to helping with licensing and source materials of games and art. If you have a passion for GNU/Linux, love gaming and want to help make the base distro of Ubuntu, Mint and many others even better then please contact us on IRC at #debian-games on irc.debian.org or via our mailing list debian-devel-games@lists.debian.org.

Here are some interesting links if you want to get involved in the fun. Even if you can't or don't want to jump in immediately, please spread the word and we are also always looking for friendly IRC idlers. ;)
