From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Description of problem:
[robk@localhost ~]$ locate pacman
Given Namco's litigisnous, it's probably unwise to include this in the
xscreensave package. We really should groom xscreensaver for this sort
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. user xscreensaver
2. namco notices pacman module
3. lawyers appear
Actual Results: Pacman appears
Expected Results: Lack of men in expensive suits with terrifying
blessed rustproof +1 fountain pens and briefcases
I've emailed legal so we'll see what they say.
The consensus from Red Hat legal is that this shouldn't be something
we should be worried about right now.
If they have a problem with us using it then they'll ask us to remove it.
