Description Mike Swanson 2009-06-19 06:51:10 UTC
Description of problem:
Some music from a very early contributor (before 0.1 was released, even) had plagiarized music from a Duke Nukem total conversion, claiming it was his own.  More information can be seen here: http://www.doomworld.com/vb/freedoom/46675-musical-plagiarism-in-freedoom/

Additional info:
The following files are infringing:
musics/d_adrian.mus

musics/d_count2.mus
musics/d_ddtbl2.mus

It should also be noted that Freedoom has changed hosts, and this has not yet been reflected in the Fedora package.  New homepage is at http://www.nongnu.org/freedoom/ with a Savannah project page at https://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/freedoom/
