This is neat stuff, and I'd love to have it in Fedora. However, because this doesn't do anything unless you go out and buy (or steal) a copy of an infinity engine game, it's unfortunately not really appropriate for Fedora. This is the same policy that keeps, say, Exult out of the distribution. (xu4, which I maintain, is right on the edge because U4 data can be freely downloaded at runtime.) I don't really agree with this policy but that's the way it is. If you disagree you're welcome to make a case on the devel list, of course; maybe enough folks will agree and the policy can be changed. I would suggest you look into rpmfusion for this package.

This is bizarre; why not just close the ticket instead of changing the summary to something meaningless?
