Composband and FrogComposband are both direct forks of each other. Have fun representing that family history

I didn't include every single variant, but just the ones that seemed to be the "main" group.

Check it out here.

My sources were tangar's variants table, RogueBasin, and GitHub pages.

I may add some color coding later but I'm pleased with what I have for now.

Let me know if you see any errors, or if you have any ideas for ways to improve it.
Ooh! This is really pretty! Nice work~

What do you mean? All sources I see online say that FrogComposband is simply a variant of Composband? FrogComposband launched after Composband, and FrogComposband has been updated more recently.

Composband's history is somewhat convoluted. It started out as a fork of elliposchengband 6.1.0; that early elli-based version of Composband (then stylized as ComPosband with an uppercase P) was made available for play on angband.live, but never got an official release version before Gwarl (the Composband developer) scrapped the elli base and re-based the game off normal PosChengband; so the first release version was ComPosband 7.0.3, forked from PosChengband 7.0.2.

FrogComposband 7.0.strawberry, the first release version of FrogComposband, was forked from ComPosband 7.0.3. Gwarl then halted development on 7.0.4 and forked Composband 7.1.0 from FrogComposband 7.0.strawberry; so each variant is a direct fork of the other, and Composband is its own grandfather.

I always assumed that frogcomposband was just a release named in honor of frog-knows.
