Description of problem:
The game gnometris is not installed with gnome-games. It is a standard part of
the upstream gnome-games package, and even some of the config files for
gnometris are included in the package on Red Hat.

I think a tetris clone is an integral part of an Linux installation, and it is a

Nothing we can do about it.
The Wikipedia entry on Tetris,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetris#History_and_legal_issues states that "TTC no

ksirtris and ksmiletris, and if this was an issue the RedHat lawyers would have
heard about this by now.
So I say: enable Gnometris again for FC5. Would be a great addition!
