pyglet provides an object-oriented programming interface for developing
games and other visually-rich applications for Windows, Mac OS X and
Linux. Some of the features of pyglet are:
* No external dependencies or installation requirements. For most
application and game requirements, pyglet needs nothing else besides
Python, simplifying distribution and installation.
* Take advantage of multiple windows and multi-monitor desktops. pyglet
allows you to use as many windows as you need, and is fully aware of
multi-monitor setups for use with fullscreen games.
* Load images, sound, music and video in almost any format. pyglet can
optionally use AVbin to play back audio formats such as MP3,
OGG/Vorbis and WMA, and video formats such as DivX, MPEG-2, H.264,
WMV and Xvid.
The package have a few issues:
* It depends softly on avbin. Softly means, it uses it if it is present,
otherwise it won't produce errors. avbin is a wrapper around ffmpeg, so it
can't be packaged for Fedora. I am packaging avbin for rpmfusion. pyglet can do
many other things hence I thought I should package it for Fedora.
The question is: Should I remove the last paragraph from the description?
* The source tarball has an examples directory, with bunch of code examples. I
am packaging all these examples in a -examples subpackage. Among them is a game
called astraea. Astraea contains a ttf font file. The Readme file says it is a
free font by I don't think we can include it in Fedora. It is actually this
Right now, I picked a font that is available in Fedora and made the -examples
subpackage require that font package. Is this a good solution? What is the best
procedure in such cases?
Please share your opinions.
