Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.6, Package name: exult-1.6, Maintainer: nikkohigashi

As computers evolve, we risk losing classic games from the
not-so-distant past. One of these, Ultima 7, an RPG from the early
1990's, still has a huge following, and many consider it to be one of
the most immersive games ever produced.

Exult is a project to recreate Ultima 7 for modern operating systems,
using the game's original plot, data, and graphics files. It enables
play of Ultima VII: The Black Gate and Ultima VII Part Two: Serpent
Isle, and their corresponding expansion disks Forge of Virtue and
Silver Seed, on modern machines.

In order to play these games, data files from the original games are

*: Convert broken sourceforge HOMEPAGEs back to http

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
games/*: fix alignment of variable values

pkglint -Wall -r --autofix --only aligned

After running the above command, three packages had to be adjusted

In maelstrom-x11, pkglint didn't see that a commented variable
assignment should have been re-aligned as well.

In netmaze, there was a single line that didn't align well with all the
others, but pkglint decided to adjust the whole paragraph to this single
line. The result would have been ok, but not good.

In tscp, there was a paragraph where some of the lines were indented
one space more than the others. This rule is useful when one variable
name is very long compared to the others, but not in this case.
