Interestingly, the following games are missing(actually
present in the original KDE package)

1. kasteroids
2. ksirtet
Please include these packages.

One more point. I myself like and use RedHat distribution.
However I also like KDE and it will be great if you package
some more KDE applications(like kpackage, kcpuload, aktion
krecord, kmpg etc) too.

Like many users, I prefer KDE and if Redhat contains KDE
as option, it will be great if it provides full power of
KDE when someone opts for KDE during installation. This
will obviously retain the popularity of RedHat among
newcomers to linux too.

Mandrake distribution has proved that a combination of
RedHat and KDE is preferred by all. In that case why not
RedHat does a little bit more to market KDE as  well ?
Finally RedHat will be the winner, and as  RedHat user
myself, nothing can be more pleasing than that.

kasteroids emulates a game copyright (c) Atari corporation.  Unless
the name and all references to "asteroids" are changed, it cannot be

ksirtet emulates the exact gameplay of tetris, copyright Elorg
Entertainment (or whoever owns tetris now).  They *actively* pursue
tetris clones and stop redistribution.  We don't want to get our feet
in that legal quagmire.

Your other suggestions will be considered.
