I'll try for a virtual category called games-text. There would be less resistance than splitting off a primary category.

Then, I proposed a category for games-interpreters, games-engines, or games-misc for parts of games that didn't include the games.
As a virtual category, dMagnetic would belong to games-text, and could later belong to another relevant category.

As I'm learning about the ports tree, I can try to make a patch file and submit a bug report for a virtual category: games-text.

I'll give it a try, and follow up with a link to the proposed patch.

Last time, freebsd-ports was the primary mailing list discussion to this thread.

This time, let freebsd-games be the primary mailing list discussion. I can try making the patch and bug report, then leaving important updates to freebsd-games

Thank you.
