Barry,

On LapisPuzzle, the menu items are, in total New Game, Info Panel, Help Hide 
and Quit.  As far as I can tell all of them work fine. :)

Both LapisPuzzle and Ladder were perfectly playable in the past.   I believe 
LapisPuzzle has an issue since some of the events in GNUstep have changed, so 
it's probably an issue with simply updating it to use the right ones.

As far as Ladder.app goes, it is an implementation of the game Go.   Although 
when I compiled it recently, it doesn't seem to work properly.

So, they were certainly "finished" but they've undergone some "bit-rot" due to 
changes in the frameworks.

Later, GJC

The main issue (besides lapispuzzle.app being unplayable since none of 
the keys work) is that they were just never finished.  Almost all of the 
menu options don't do anything.  I can probably get them in the games 
team if they are fixed but are they worth it?  I don't even understand 
the point of ladder.app.
