Going to need to see a formal release before I accept that they are now the new upstream.

I too would love to see FB in Solus if feasible.

@DataDrake What do you mean "accept that they are now the new upstream"? This GitHub page is linked directly from their downloads page in the "Sourcecode" section.

@FSMaxB I looks for that and didn't see it until after you pointed it out thanks.

SDL_Pango: glue between Pango and SDL (SDL_Pango is currently unsupported and needs a small API patch to work with Frozen-Bubble)

The thing keeping me from accepting this is that they want us to patch SDL_Pango for their needs and looking at the patch, it will undoubtedly break over programs.

@DataDrake: I think that is not the case anymore for 2.2.1, but I'm not quite sure. Looking at Archlinux, they don't have a dependency on sdl_pango and the changelog mentions switching to a new SDL Perl api.

2.2.1 is also marked as a beta release on their website :/

The other distributions are installing the beta version as well:

Note that 2.212 is the beta version, see here

I'll make an exception for the perl release.

I recall I did something for this... have to check how far I went. I'll assign it to myself so I won't forget to check.
