OpenArena is an open-source content package for ioQuake3 licensed under the
GPL, effectively creating a free stand-alone game. Though OpenArena is a free
replacement for id Software Inc.'s Quake 3 Arena, it is NOT compatible with
the proprietary game!
OpenArena might be considered unsuitable for children.
This package installs the OpenArena client.

openarena (0.8.8-19) unstable; urgency=medium
* Redo portability patches based on what went upstream to ioquake3
- d/p/Treat-GNU-kFreeBSD-and-GNU-Hurd-as-equivalent-to-GNU-Linu.patch:
Treat all GNU platforms as essentially the same for our purposes.
This combines what used to be d/p/Fix-FTBFS-on-kFreeBSD.patch and
- d/p/Makefile-confine-LIB-to-the-one-platform-that-needs-it-na.patch,
Treat all CPU architectures on GNU platforms as at least potentially
supported, without having any specific code for the majority of
architectures. (ioquake3 PR #129, as released to Debian in
+ In particular this means we will attempt to build on m68k
(Closes: #865721)
- d/p/Use-LDFLAGS-on-non-Linux-too.patch:
Drop patch, no longer needed for any GNU platform. GNU/kFreeBSD
and GNU/Hurd both take the GNU/Linux code paths now.
* Re-order patch series: backports from upstream, then forwarded patches,
and finally Debian-specific (non-upstreamable) patches
* Move Debian-specific patches into debian/patches/debian/
* Drop openarena-dbg, rely on automatic -dbgsym packages instead
- Don't build openarena-server-dbgsym since it would collide with
* Use recommended https URL for debian/copyright Format
* d/copyright: Document new upstream location
* d/control: openarena-server Depends on lsb-base
* d/control: Declare Debian Policy 4.0.0 compliance
2017-06-18 - Simon McVittie <>
openarena (0.8.8-18) unstable; urgency=medium
* Don't install a documentation symlink for LINUXNOTES.gz.
That file is outdated and not very useful in a binary distribution
like Debian, and openarena-data no longer installs it.
(Closes: #857956)
2016-09-21 - Simon McVittie <>
openarena (0.8.8-17) unstable; urgency=medium
* Move to debhelper compat level 10
- don't build in parallel explicitly, it is now the default
* debian/rules: align with ioquake3's
- enable full compiler handling, but disable -fPIE -pie because this
source package only compiles PIC shared objects
2016-06-27 - Simon McVittie <>
openarena (0.8.8-16) unstable; urgency=medium
* Lock Debian-openarena account in purge instead of deleting it
(see #621833)
* Standards-Version: 3.9.8 (no further changes needed)
* Use SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH to generate PRODUCT_DATE, similar to ioquake3
* debian/gbp.conf: use DEP-14 branch names
2016-01-22 - Simon McVittie <>
openarena (0.8.8-15) unstable; urgency=medium
* Use DEB_VENDOR instead of lsb_release
* Drop compatibility with ioquake3 (<< 1.36+u20130504)
* debian/rules: simplify by building in a non-platform-specific directory
* debian/rules: rely on a q3arch version that accepts command-lines like
"q3arch make i386 linux-gnu", to avoid repeated invocation
* openarena Recommends openarena-oacmp1 now that it is in Debian,
and openarena-server Suggests it
* Stop installing the legacy Debian menu file
- stop converting the icon to XPM format
- no longer needs a build-dependency on imagemagick
* Normalize packaging through `wrap-and-sort -abst`
* Remove unnecessary debian/tmp prefix from install files
* Use https for Vcs-Git, to provide anonymous checkouts that
still authenticate the server
* Remove host architecture restriction: since 0.8.8-6 it has not actually
excluded any Debian architecture
2015-07-13 - Simon McVittie <>
openarena (0.8.8-14) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add arm64 support by applying Martin Michlmayr's patch from ioquake3,
which is also needed here (Closes: #790668)
