Not that I'm aware of.

There are two server variants, Vanilla and Paradise.  Vanilla used to be
just Netrek.  Paradise was a fork.  Vanilla was so named after the fork.
Vanilla is actively developed, but I don't think Paradise is.  Paradise
went where not everyone wanted to go, but we were able to copy certain
changes from it into Vanilla after a while.

I haven't seen any recent Paradise development, and I'd rather not 
promote that variant by mentioning it in a Vanilla package description.  

All this should be peripheral to whether a Mandrake user chooses to
install the package.  Unless you are also packaging Paradise, I think
you should name the package netrek-server or netrek-vanilla not just

In the case of the Netrek clients, there is active development in the
many forks.  For them I would name the packages netrek-cow, netrek-brmh
and so forth.
