Hi Jon -

I see your point but I have not done much to track Box2D as it was (and maybe still is) a moving target. Moreover, the game is quite sensitive to the physics so even a subtle change of the model may break some levels - I've run into this previously when updating Box2D. That said, I will consider any patches you might send.

Regards,
Tim

Hi, Jon Ciesla, numptyphysics maintainer.

We don't allow bundling libraries in Fedora, and numptyphysics ships
an old version of Box2D.

This got missed on review, and I'm now trying to get numptyphysics to
build against a system Box2D.  There are functions and data types that
have changed, and so I was wondering if you had any interest in if not
using a system Box2D, at least bundling the current Box2D?

Either way, thanks for a fun and challenging game. :)

Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Not sure if this merits an exception, or a compat-Box2D. Filing this to spur discussion.

At the moment, limb is looking into a compat-Box2D as the version that it is based on has been identified.

I've not been able to get this to work with my compat-Box2D.

So what should we do here? We're all on FPC so I guess we can bring it up in a meeting.

We talked about this at today's meeting (​​​​​​​http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting-2/2015-02-12/fpc.2015-02-12-17.05.txt):
