This is a union, one of which *is* satisfyable in main (doom-wad).
heretic-wad is a virtual package with no provider in main. Is that the problem?
game-data-packager is indeed in contrib. Is that the problem? (b)
Whilst I personally think the "no recommends on contrib packages" rule is
stupid, accepting that, this is not a direct recommend on a contrib package,
but as part of a union.
Practically, 99% of people installing this package are going to want to install
game-data-packager, which is free software. Not having it in Recommends is,
imho, a disservice to our users.
If you could spell out which of (a), (b), both or other is the problem then we
can rectify the package.
