Actually I'd say it's the other way around. I'd like very much to make my
dg patches against a new and improved version of OasisOLC. The current
version (2.0.1) hasn't been updated correctly to bpl21 yet, a fact I tried
to remedy in my latest dg patch. I'm not planning on maintaining Oasis as
such, since dg scripts is enough for me to handle.

One exists. Thanks for the offer, though.

DG scripts was originally constructed by Eric Green of Deaths Gate MUD,
hence the name. Deaths Gate was written in C++, but Mark A. Heilpern
of OmegaMUD converted the files to C, and made a publically available
patch. He maintained this until v0.99pl7 (in 1998), where I took over
(in 2001).

v0.99pl8 has just hit the ftp site. The bug reports I get are sometimes
hard to fix, since most of them just state things doesn't work.
They work on my local version...
