Have you asked / gotten feedback from Hatari disto
package maintainers about anything they'd like
to be changed?

which distro are you thinking and which changes ?

Any distro, any changes / patches they apply.

Large number of distros derive their packages from
Debian (many through Ubuntu), so Debian would be
most important.

But you would need to ask package maintainers to
check Hatari [1] *before* release for this to be useful.

[1] Try packaging latest Hatari git version and
see whether latest distro packaging tools complain
about anything.


unfortunately I have no time and no interest in packaging hatari for debian/ubutu to see if it works.

If some packagers for any distro want to report issues or patches we should add, then they can write to this mailing list. But as far as I remember we had very few comments regarding packaging.

Also, I don't think Hatari is a complex program to package, if a distro managed to do a .deb/.rpm for hatari 2.2, there should be no problem doing it for hatari 2.3

I know Mageia as a recent version of Hatari and the spec file they use has no patch, so I don't think extra work from us is needed in this area.
