Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the sandboxgamemaker package.

Good and useful package, however I'm busy with other packages/job and interest
has waned.

This is a contrib package and licensing is difficult: upstream insists on using
a custom license with is kind of confusing, but then releases the engine under
a generous ZLIB license. The content is mostly free and they have put a  strong
effort into making it DFSG, but the attribution and license of some of the
content is unclear. Some content requests that the author is notified when
used, not be used for commercial purposes, or other restrictions that makes it
unfree. However, upstream has been trying to work out all those issues. For now
we distribute the ZLIB engine and have a downloader to grab content.

The package description is:
 Platinum Arts Sandbox is an open source, easy-to-use, standalone 3D game
 maker and 3D game design program. It is currently based on the Cube 2
 engine used in schools around the world that allows kids and adults to
 create their own video games, worlds, levels, adventures, and quests,
 even cooperatively. The goal is to make it accessible to kids but also
 powerful enough for full game projects.
