Spec URL:
Description: This is my first package, and I am seeking a sponsor.
Please note that my host is not up and running 24/7.
"Circus Linux!" is based on the Atari 2600 game "Circus Atari" by Atari,
released in 1980.  Gameplay is similar to "Breakout" and "Arkanoid"- you
slide a device left and right to bounce objects into the air which destroy
a wall.

Comment 5 damian 2010-05-09 09:08:13 UTC

Fixed them, but without 

fix `/usr/share/doc/circuslinux-1.0.3': Permission denied
in mkinstalldirs script in %install section

Can you give me a hint what is wrong, because I don't have this Permission denied anywhere.

Comment 6 damian 2010-05-09 17:28:06 UTC
OK, found on an other machine, with not so messed up permissions, what you mean
gonna fix it soon.

Comment 8 Mohammed Imran 2010-05-15 11:12:19 UTC

Release number is 3 and changelog entry doesnt match

Comment 9 damian 2010-05-16 04:33:49 UTC

Release number is now 4 and changelog is updated.
Description entirely changed.

Comment 10 James Hogarth 2015-12-04 01:38:03 UTC
Damian this bug is several years old at this point.

Are you intending to revisit this, find a sponsor and complete the packaging process?

As per stalled review policy if there is no response within a week this bug will be closed.

Comment 11 Michael Schwendt 2015-12-11 12:53:53 UTC
Messing with the "Assignee To" field or the "fedora-review" flag can lead to hiding this ticket from the needsponsor queue:

(!) It has not been displayed on that queue since 2010-05-30 due to that.

Meanwhile, it seems the files are no longer available.

Comment 12 James Hogarth 2015-12-11 16:00:38 UTC
It has been over a week and the requestor has not responded to a NeedsInfo flag.

Closing as per policy.
