Forum:The 3.5.0 source code leak

From NetHackWiki

How is the wiki going to handle this incident? I could put up a summary of the most noticeable changes, and I'd love to see what other people can find as well. Even better would be putting up the source itself on the wiki, marked up like the official releases. I'm not sure if that's reasonable, though; since the code wasn't officially released, I'm not sure if the NetHack GPL applies to it. At the very minimum we could update the compiling instructions with any changes that apply to the leaked code. --Darth l33t (talk) 21:16, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

It's not a release, so I think the source should not be on the wiki. Perhaps one article, like "NetHack source leak" or something like that documenting it. --paxed (talk) 05:01, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

I do think that it's worth at least covering here. At the very least we can have a few articles about new features in the leaked source code, even if they're unfinished. I think it shows an uncharacteristic lack of curiosity if a wiki doesn't cover a big event like this. - Crawldragon (talk|rog) 04:09, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

I just added a section about it to our next version article. Improvements are welcome! —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 17:11, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
