  Hmm... The copyright file states that alien-arena is copyright by  COR
Entertainment, LLC, but nearly all the files are copyright by Id
Software, Inc... Is that the same company ?

  I mentioned already several times on this list that there were also
copyright problems in this package. Before uploading, I need at the very
least to know if the src/boost* code is used for compilation. If not,
we'll just strip that down - else, we'll have to go through a very
tedious listing of copyrights...

  Moreover, I mentioned a serious problem in #449475. I don't have
time/energy/knowlegde of vegastrike to check whether these files are in
use - or could be replaced. When the usage of the boost code is
clarified, I will upload it as it would take two RC bugs down, which
would leave only this problem to be dealt with.

  These ones are fine. I've just uploaded warsow, and warsow-data will
follow (not so soon, as I only have 80kB/s for upload, and 2*92M is
slightly heavy). Somewhat later tonight.

  Cheers !
