All other distributions have scanmem/gameconqueror packages. scanmem is a command line memory scanner to locate variables in memory and GameConqueror is the Python/GTK3 front-end for it which also provides game trainer features. But it is not only a game cheating tool. It can also help testing applications, debugging memory issues, watching variables in memory or it can be used for reverse-engineering. Hackers also use it for things like ping spoofing.

As the upstream maintainer of this tool I'd like to bring it to openSUSE and maintain it there.

In the previous hackweek I've been blocked by important L3s and I've noticed the need for many more upstream changes. These have been implemented, the new version v0.16 has been pushed to Debian already, and this can continue now.

Looking for mad skills in:

c python python3 rpm obs library

      Project started with delay. Two further upstream commits could be applied already to support openSUSE better. First attempt to be included in devel:tools has been rejected with something like: "Please run spec-cleaner." Further rpmlint warnings/errors have been fixed. A major issue has been found: libscanmem is not compiled separately and is under GPLv3 this way. Asked former upstream maintainers to confirm license change to LGPLv3 for libscanmem.

      @pluskalm did the initial packaging based on my work without informing me. GameConqueror is not provided due to security reasons (pkexec) it seems. I've managed to get version 0.16 accepted to devel:tools. I've fixed the bug that the GC .po files are installed although GC is not built upstream.

      Latest 0.17 with major performance improvement is available on Leap 15 and together with GameConqueror from my home project.
