[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Similar to my Urban Terror package, it will consist of a client/server
source package (which compiles the client and server binary packages)
and a static data package. This game is one of the many suggested by
the Debian Games team on http://wiki.debian.org/Games/Suggested and
thus will be collaboratively maintained with them.

The game engine is a modified ioQuake3, released under GPLv2. However
the data used in this game is non-free and thus the GPL source package will go in contrib.

Static data license is non-free but free to redistribute, license is quoted below:

"The World of Padman is protected by copyright.

The copyrights belong to the respective authors of the WoP-Team. 
All commercial use of the World of Padman and consequently the 
single works is prohibited unless you have explicit permission from the WoP-Team.
This includes, but is not limited to, mass archival as on a cd-rom 
and inclusion in commercially published compilations (books and/or magazines).

This includes further the prohibition of copying, changing, mirroring 
and public reproduction in sense of a commercial use electronic or otherwise. 
Private non-commercial copying, mirroring and even public reproduction is desired. ;-)

Changes to the game and consequently the single works whether commercial or not, 
is prohibited without explicit permission.

Some parts of the game were created with material, (e.g. textures,
Sounds) which we acquired from different sources; they are free of any
of third party rights as far as we know. If anyone discovers we've used
his / her work unlawfully, contact us immediately so that we can
respond as soon as possible."

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of worldofpadman back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 18 months.

If you are still interested in adopting worldofpadman, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 481286 ITP: worldofpadman -- Quake 3 based comic-style first person shooter
 owner 481286 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <481286@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team

This is vaguely on my to-do list, but not particularly high on it. It's good
to hear that WoP's somewhat patched engine isn't necessary!

If I remember correctly, the WoP data is distributable but not DFSG-free,
so we'd have world-of-padman in contrib/games and world-of-padman-data-*
in non-free/games (or if I'm misremembering the license and it's not actually
distributable, we could use game-data-packager).

Thanks, these look like a good basis for a world-of-padman package.

You might want to update Fedora's ioquake3 to a recent svn snapshot: in recent
versions (in particular, before the ones in Debian unstable and experimental,
r1858 and r1933 respectively), most of my patches have been upstreamed.
Sort of. Unfortunately, the variable names and semantics have changed during
the upstreaming process: you'd now use

    +set com_homepath .wop
    +set com_basegame wop
    +set cl_gamename ????    (in OA this is openarena, I forget what it does)

(An upstream release of ioquake3 1.37 would be nice, but I'm not holding
my breath...)

Replying to myself now that I've looked again: the "copyright" statement
(which doesn't actually include any copyright notices or list any copyright
holders!) is sufficiently vaguely-worded that I wouldn't want to upload it
to non-free, so we'll probably have to go the game-data-packager route.
