Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnubg

Gnubg package is 2 years old in Ubuntu Lucid - please include latest version from Debian unstable, it's important to have up to date gnubg game in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS as latest version contains bugfixes and updated translations.
Updated gnubg package isn't in Debian testing because of missing build on MIPS architecture, because of this new gnubg packages didn't automatically included into Ubuntu Lucid before feature freeze :(

I'm pasting new entries from debian/changelog file ( ):

gnubg (0.90+20091206-4) unstable; urgency=low
   * Avoid building the one-sided rollout database during an
     architecture-dependent build. Not only does this avoid wasted time on
     the buildds, since it's an architecture-independent file, but it
     should hopefully fix FTBFS problems on the kfreebsd-* buildds.
   * Enable SSE on all amd64 systems, not just Linux ones.
   * Add a trailing blank line to NEWS.Debian.

gnubg (0.90+20091206-3) unstable; urgency=low
   * Disable SSE on ia64. Although the upstream configure script thinks it
     should work, gcc on ia64 does not appear to support the -msse or
     -msse2 options.

gnubg (0.90+20091206-2) unstable; urgency=low
   * Do not move the upstream changelog in the gnubg-data package if that
     package is not being built (such as during binary-only builds on the
     buildd network).

gnubg (0.90+20091206-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream development snapshot.
     - Now uses Canberra for sound. (Closes: #548398)
     - Small, non-resizeable dialog boxes with some fonts should now be
       fixed. (Closes: #477975)
     - Now uses docbook2x, dblatex, and xsltproc to build documentation.
     - Build with threading.
     - Build with SSE2 support on amd64.
   * Fix upstream "available" spelling error detected by Lintian.
   * Fix upstream man page hyphen by post-processing the generated man
     page, working around a bug in the Docbook to man conversion.
   * Stop attempting to reduce the number of underlying libraries gnubg is
     linked with. The attempt is fragile and difficult to maintain and
     caused problems with binutils-gold support. binutils-gold will
     hopefully replace the regular linker with one that automatically
     suppresses unnecessary link dependencies. Instead, pass --as-needed
     to the linker. (Closes: #554672)
   * Upstream now installs a regular hicolor icon set, so modify the
     desktop file to enable the automatic icon path searching.
   * Depend on ttf-dejavu-core and symlink the fonts used by gnubg to
     the versions in that package instead of including separate copies of
     the Bitstream Vera fonts.
   * Build-depend on libreadline-dev instead of libreadline5-dev.
     (Closes: #553886)
   * Use autoreconf instead of running the separate programs individually.
   * Don't fail make clean if no files have been created.
   * Move the upstream changelog into the gnubg-data package, but still
     install it as /usr/share/doc/gnubg/changelog.gz.
   * Update README.Debian to remove references to optional features. The
     upstream configure process is now much simpler, with far fewer
     optional bits. Remove references to features upstream no longer has.
   * Update get-orig-source logic to use the version from debian/changelog
     and download snapshots again.
   * Update to debhelper compatibility level V7.
     - Use debhelper rule minimization with overrides.
     - Use debian/clean to specify most of the extra files to remove.
     - Add ${misc:Depends} to gnubg-data.
   * Update standards version to 3.8.3 (no changes required).
   * Translation updates:
     - Russian, thanks Yuri Kozlov. (Closes: #540602)
     - Spanish, thanks Francisco Javier Cuadrado. (Closes: #528174)
