Since the complete removal of Qt4 is just around the corner, I am proposing to
do the following work to keep doomsday in Debian's development repository:

* A Team-upload onto experimental of v2.2.2 with Qt5 support,
* NO support for /usr/games/ (why do we still force such path when it's
already 2020?),
* NO support for the alternatives system of /usr/games/doom,
* Dropping all Debian-specific patches (will review later),
* NO complete review of copyright information (know fixable issues, see

...and I may solve those issues later and have the 2.x version back into

The git packaging repo is here: https://salsa.debian.org/games-team/doomsday .
If I did not upload on time, someone else can continue with the packaging

Michael: I haven't seen your packaging with doomsday in the last 4 years. Are
you still going to work on doomsday 2.x in future? If not, please let me know
so that the maintenance status can be properly reflected both in the package
metadata and on the website.
