Packaging is the fact of creating a package. :) Normally this imply a limited amont of work. But there is a team "upstram" that continue to work on it and where bug can be reported (or I can be a "bridge")

Porting mean a lot of work (at least in my head). What does Pickle is usually porting, things like : - translating GL to GLES - hard work on resolution (change textures + a lot of code) - optimizing for arm - etc Usually those who have ported will also fix the bugs (as they are largely involved in the code). Chance that the "upstream" code to be merged later is small (That's why we have mame4all and mame106. The later is a port from a newer release). So in some way it's a fork. (Tuxrace is a clear fork of extreme tuxracer)

I hope that clarify all. -- Sebt3, 02:54, 1 November 2010

unreleased software

On the games,software projects and emulator lists there is alot of "Unreleased" stuff. Could the open source projects be moved to port requests? I'm not sure what to do with the proprietary ones like caster or homebrew ones like Onee-sama Tasukete! Maplesugarlover 15:01, 17 January 2011 (MET)

I replied over here, because it's relevant to that page, so best to keep the discussion there probably... Esn 01:12, 18 January 2011 (MET)

Ironically , I didn't add any port requests, but I did update all 3 listsmaplesugarlover 03:05, 18 January 2011 (MET)

Missed releases

I was looking through the pandora developer's corner for pandora on gp32x and I found some stuff you missed



You are welcome maplesugarlover 21:07, 23 January 2011 (MET)

will x run on the pandora ?

blue protoman removed port requests that are on will x run on the pandora ? Just thought you should know. Also , I went on a deleting spree maplesugarlover 18:14, 5 February 2011 (MET)

Ok, thanks for letting me know. Seems okay... Esn 05:50, 7 February 2011 (MET)

cool ideas

what if there was a new page called cool ideas. put things like the repo spec, new pnd format, tinxl and there. It might also make sense to put it on the main page maplesugarlover 04:02, 15 February 2011 (MET)

never mind we haveProposals and cool ideas

though you could add them to front page maplesugarlover 22:04, 17 February 2011 (MET)


there is an timidity installer pnd , but timidity is on port requests. Could timidity be removed from port requests ? maplesugarlover 17:20, 20 February 2011 (MET)

I think so, yes. Esn 01:06, 21 February 2011 (MET)

I removed TiMidity maplesugarlover 01:07, 21 February 2011 (MET)

CSS+JS Extensions for Template:Languages

Hi Esn,

did you already tried to adapt the CSS and JS as we talked about at User_talk:ABC? --ABC 23:46, 26 April 2011 (MEST)

Not yet, sorry, I've been a bit busy in the non-internet life. I'll try to do it soon, though. Esn 03:13, 27 April 2011 (MEST)

port requests goals

abc started a discussion. He wants to get rid of port requests, spread the stuff out. Apparently the page is to hard for devs. I would like your input [1] maplesugarlover 03:47, 29 April 2011 (MEST)

I'm not exactly updating port requests that much.... maybe you could? maplesugarlover 19:55, 10 June 2011 (CEST)
Well, what techniques do you use to update it? As in, where do you look? I can't make promises, since I already have my hands full, but maybe I could do something sometimes... Esn 23:47, 14 June 2011 (CEST)

Image thumbnail issues

Hi. There are image thumbnailing problems with both Riscos5pandora.png and Riscos5pandora.jpg (used in RISC OS). However, PandoraFront.jpg works fine. Could you please let me know what's gone wrong, so that it can be corrected? Thanks very much. --Trevj 09:39, 9 September 2011 (CEST)

Sorry for the delay. I've had this issue come up before, and I'm really not sure why it's happening... Esn 19:14, 8 October 2011 (CEST)
Could it have something to do with length of the title?... Esn 19:20, 8 October 2011 (CEST)
No, never mind, that's silly. What should happen is that when you preview it as a thumbnail, or save the page, the server should create a thumbnail at this location: For MAMElogo, for example, it shows up here: And yet it's not happening for some reason... Esn 19:27, 8 October 2011 (CEST)
Oh well, not to worry. I could just upload a thumbnail-sized version, I suppose. Never mind - cheers. Trevj 15:43, 6 January 2012 (CET)
