Are there any developers currently depending on SDL1 in a way that they cannot upgrade to SDL2 ? Are debian old stable and Ubuntu 12.04 the only still maintained affected distros ? When SDL1 is replaced by SDL2 some announcment should be made, that should contain instructions on how users of affected distros can update to SDL2. (maybe as a link to sdl2 packages where they exist or a link to our wiki where we also document how other 3rd party libs can be build) I dont want to tell our users "You must use a release for SDL support" and then when they submit a bugreport or patch tell them "You must use latest git master" We want bug reports and patches against git master, always, we should ensure git master works always I vote for listening to our users and fellow developers and resolving any issues a SDL1->SDL2 switch would have for them and once resolved to drop SDL1 Thanks [...] -- Michael GnuPG fingerprint: 9FF2128B147EF6730BADF133611EC787040B0FAB Dictatorship: All citizens are under surveillance, all their steps and actions recorded, for the politicians to enforce control.
