[SUGGESTION] i am going to create a deb package for xonotic linux

#1
so i have decided to create deb packages for xonotic just because i don't want people to download the whole linux and windows
so i decided to separate the packages to be extracted in certain directories
here is the list: Note any path here is changeable
/usr/share/xonotic for the game itself
/usr/bin/xonotic to launch it in terminal
/usr/share/applications/xonotic.desktop for the desktop file
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/symbolic/apps/xonotic.svg for the icons

and if i need to create a deb package i need details

can i have the maintainer name as my name or your given name
and what are the dependencies of xonotic linux 
do you want the netinstaller(requires modifying the website because as i said you that i hate people download everything)
or do you want the offline installer or you want both 
if you want the netinstaller you have to modify the website as following:

trim every windows and osx libs and executables and upload the file in the name of
xonotic-linux.(the format you like to send the package like .zip) and send me the link

if do you want me to create make sure to tell a yes or no and answer the questions

Maybe, good idea, but I think separation of win and linux versions is not too heavy. Maybe 10-20 Mbs, because DLLs and executables. Also, there is at least one repository package already exists, and maybe this is enough. And, one of the problems - there are exists another types of distributions, like RedHat, Arch, Gentoo, etc, for which is also needed to create packages like this. For arch and gentoo can be built separated version of xonotic from git, and its buildfiles can be posted in distros repositories, and its users doesn't want to build windows version (which won't be built). For debian-based and rpm-based distros also can be created builder without windows version. But current release made to be universal for every player downloading this game.

Sounds like spam.

You mean 10-15 mb, not 500. It combined perfectly, there is no another version of game duplicate inside.
