Description:
 Various games are divided into two logical parts: engine and data.
 .
 game-data-packager is a tool which builds .rpm files for game
 data which cannot be distributed (such as commercial game data).

 http://pkg-games.alioth.debian.org/game-data/

This is a Debian-native project & I'm in the upstream-team.

This is my first package.

Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2015-11-19 12:09:13 UTC
game-data-packager's sole purpose is to repackage non-free game resources into distro packages. As such it has no place in Fedora itself. I suggest you file a review-request for rpmfusion-nonfree for this.

Comment 2 Alexandre Detiste 2015-11-19 13:59:34 UTC
Ok, that makes sense.

To be pedantic, there's also an handfull of free games suported;
for which no one was interrested into creating a Debian package.

http://scummvm.org/games/ : Soltys, Sfinx

http://www.ucw.cz/draci-historie/index-en.html : Dračí Historie

These doesn't seems to be packaged in Fedora either,
so someone else may want to package these games.


The others games are already there:
