The server currently implements most of the same functionality as the
real Battle.net(R) servers from Blizzard Entertainment.  You can chat,
play games, use / commands, and things like account passwords, user
icons, ad banners, and channel operators work too.  It is by no means
complete, though.

2013-10-24 - Dmitry Smirnov <onlyjob@debian.org>
pvpgn (1.8.5-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Added new "autoconf.patch" to fix error in "configure.in".
* Simplified invocation of dh_autoreconf in subdirectory: replaced
corresponding overrides with "debian/autoreconf" file.
* Use autotools-dev to update config.{guess,sub} (Closes: #727494):
This is one of those rare cases when dh-autoreconf do not update
config.{sub,guess} so we use autotools-dev in addition to
dh-autoreconf, see #698765.
* Removed redundant "autoconf" from Build-Depends, dh-autoreconf already
depends on it.
