warsow: New version of warsow possibly non-distributable.
It appears that the new license for the data of warsow is even more
restrictive than the previous license. The new license reads.
Warsow Content License
Assets that are property of Chasseur de bots, use the following Warsow

provided. Defined terms may be used in the singular or plural.

Derivative Work under copyright law.

END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Clause 3 of this license goes against clauses 1, 2, 3, 7, and 8 of the
Open Source Definition (and thus the DFSG). This to me most likely
makes the new version of warsow unsuitable for distribution through
If anyone wants to dispute this, please reply to the Debian Games
