And since this script is one of mine, I thought I would respond. The
script works fine and the real problem is the stupid way upstream
(OpenArena) handles versioning, but indeed the script can be improved
with better logic to handle said stupidity. It's been on my $TODO, in
fact, but I have not had the time.
Patches to the script are welcome, or if somebody wants to take
maintainership of the script and fix it, that is fine too. Otherwise,
I'll update the script when I can -- and I will try to bring it to a
front burner but no promises.
