I can package, review, offer advice, etc.  I have 2 kids so I'm highly motivated to keep several games working and find new ones. :)

I see you are the maintainer of Battle for Wesnoth (among lots of other things); first off, as someone who's played Wesnoth over the years using your packages, thanks for maintaining this game!

Do you think it would be feasible for us to provide a wesnoth-devel (maybe "wesnoth-unstable" would be a better name) package tracking the odd-numbered unstable/development release series? (For those on-list not familiar with upstream's development cycle, Wesnoth upstream maintains two parallel branches simultaneously; a stable branch, which is always even-numbered, and a development branch, which is always odd-numbered. So, for example, we're currently on 1.12 and 1.13).

It'd be nice if it was possible for both packages to coexist on the same system: the main advantage I see from providing a wesnoth-unstable is that it lets people (be they users reporting bugs or developers working on addon content) easily test against the latest development release in addition to the latest stable release.
