AKFQuiz switched to Git
     posted by akf, Sun 12 Jan 2014 07:41:18 PM UTC

This project is in maintenance mode for a while. No new features will be implemented, but I try to keep it compatible with new systems.

The version control system has been switched to Git. This should make it easier to fork this project. If you want to make a fork, please contact me, the author. I would be happy to help with this.

For more information how to clone the Git repository, look at the homepage. Also the address for the ChangeLog has changed!

Better support for --help and --version
     posted by akf, Tue 15 Aug 2006 06:34:58 AM UTC

All programs in AKFQuiz support the parameters "--help" and "--version" now.

The output is trimmed to be usable with the program "help2man", so you can easily generate nice manpages automatically from the programs. Only "scrquiz" isn't compatible to help2man, and I don't know how to change that. [...]

I am slowly migrating AKFQuiz to Savannah. Or to be precise to the territory for non-GNUs of Savannah.
