Sometimes I like the game dopewars, so add that as a request.
I am using VL7.0 standard with XFCE

Really?  I did a search of gslapt for it first before making a request for it, and I did not find it, so I'm surprised to learn that it is there. 
After searching for it in the repo on gslapt, I downloaded the source and built it with vpackager, subsequently installing it.  The one that I created now shows up as 1.5.12-i586-1vl70 (it lacks any sort of description beyond "dopewars ()"), but no other version shows up.

Dopewars is in the testing repository.  You won't see it unless you have testing enabled.  Let me know how it works for you and I will move it to extra, if it is satisfactory.

Ah.  I did not check testing.  The one I made works perfectly -- in fact, it works better than the the Debian one ever did (there were always issues with the game's sound in Debian, whereas here there aren't.  However, I will uninstall mine and try out the testing version and then get back to you.  I'm sure it will work fine.

Thanks.  It's good to pick up new tips.  This will make it much easier to search the repositories rather than combing through the gui listing of gslapt.

I upgraded to your newly released dopewars package in testing, and it works great.  The only problem is the metaserver tab doesn't seem to connect, but I think that's an issue with the actual program rather than any problem with the package -- perhaps there are no active dopewars servers out there (or maybe an issue with the firewall on my Vector blocking it, I'm not sure).  Anyway, the package is great.  Ready for stable, I'd say.
