To be fair, Pixture is not visible in Minetest 5.0.0.
I have not claimed the repository rights of the original Pixture yet. I'm not sure if I could or should. *shrug*
Version 1.0.0 is not released yet (but it's getting close!), so it's not too late for a rename or even a merger. :-)
I just posted it to make it easy for testers to download.
It probably would have been better to assume control of Pixture, but at the time of posting, I did not know whether kaadmy will ever want to pick Pixture up again. And then we'd have a nice collision and that would have been rude. :-/
Also, assuming control over the original repo is a huuuge responsibility as well. :-/
Also note that the goal of Pixture Revival is really just a revival, fix bugs, basically to make it work for MT 5.0.0. The goal was NOT to seriously extend the game feature-wise. Basically it's my way of preserving a piece of Minetest history, while still having a playable game. So that's another justification for the name. But yeah, I admit, it was only meant as a temporary name, and then it kind of stuck … I should probably discuss with kaadmy and others to clean up this little mess. It's not too late yet …
But another (possibly only theoretical) problem with a merger would be that there will no longer be a Pixture for MT 0.4 (at least not officially) … Idk how many players are able to get MT 5 yet.
Maybe pre-5.0.0 things should be hidden or at least marked in a special on the website? I know, it's not a real solution, but at least a start.
OK, I have a simple idea to help fixing situations like this one: Allow to mark certain things as “superceded”. This means that there is a newer iteration of the thing available and the thing is no longer developed. “Superceded” does not imply the thing itself is in any way broken, just that there's a different, improved version available that still closely resembles the original. Author endorsement might also be a criterion, but it gets difficult if the author already has vanished into a puff of smoke. “superseded” should not be used for the next thing in a game series (like, when each part of the series tells a story in an epic adventure).
