Current metaserver development version has already dropped topic, and uses metamessage in main page too. Main metaserver at just hasn't been updated yet.

I'm going to change metaserver as soon as I get freeciv-web's hackish use of topic replaced by some cleaner solution.

I think that having both of them is redundant and not completely useful since "topic" is not shown in client's window.

Anyway it would be useful to have the /topic command until the metaserver software is adjusted to display the "metamessage" in the main web page.

Schedule or drop as you believe.

Do you really need separate metamessage and topic? For a long time I have considered dropping topic from metaserver too, and display metamessage instead on web interface main page too.

This patch adds a "topic" server command which can set the relative metamessage string on the metaserver webpage at runtime.

Before this patch, we used to have a Cazfi's patch that allowed to set a topic message only by cmdline. Anyway, that patch got obsoleted and is now incompatible with current sources.

Patch has been tested on 2.3.2 .
