I am rather doubtful about the graphics tiles, they look like a lot like the original , at least for the playing characters : 
http://opensnc.sourceforge.net/home/screenshots.php

I am not sure if that's not a legal risk, can you get in touch with fedora-legal ?
Comment 2 Michael Scherer 2012-03-25 06:43:21 EDT
Ok, seems to be blocked, according to
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-games-list/2008-March/msg00002.html
( linked from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/Games#List_of_games_we_will_NOT_package ).

So I put a block on FE-Legal ( per https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal:Main#FE-Legal )

I guess the block can be lifted once the name is changed, and there is new original contents. Not sure if rpmfusion can be a solution for this one.
Comment 3 Minh Ngo 2012-03-25 06:52:20 EDT
Must I change the package name to push it into rpmfusion?
Comment 4 Michael Scherer 2012-03-25 07:09:39 EDT
I have no idea, you should see with them, there is good documentation on their wiki.
Comment 5 Graziano Pala 2012-06-20 07:40:19 EDT
My comunity and me have edited the Minh's specfile and create a rpm package for fedora. See this page http://opensnc.sourceforge.net/home/download2.php (section fedora)
Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-07-27 13:09:57 EDT
This is clear trademark infringement, not to mention the game art looking to be identical copies of the Sega owned properties. I cannot see any realistic way this could ever be acceptable for Fedora, except perhaps with Sega's explicit permission or with a massive overhaul.

Closing this as CANTFIX and adding it to the List of games we will NOT package.
