Hi Robin!

Please use debian-devel-games@lists.debian.org instead. It will probably reach
more members of the Team.

I've only had time to have a look at slviewer. It bothers me a bit that some
files do not include a license, we should have to try to findo out where do
they come from and under which license they can be distributed. Usually, for
most of the countries, no license means no rights at all.

Don't worry about the protocol, it's OK to write here :) I hope we can give
you a helping hand :)

What are your plans for those packages? Maintaining them yourself or joining
the team and maintaining them collaboratively via SVN? That's not quite clear
from your previous message.
