Is any progress on this available on git.debian.org? If not, could you put
up some sort of repository?

I'd be interested in helping with it if I have time, and many of the OpenArena
changes (including the ones I made recently towards making openarena-data
DFSG-free) would probably be applicable.

I've prepared most of a q3lcc package for non-free (see alioth git), but
I'm not sure that it's distributable in binary form. Most of it is under a
license that's unclear but probably OK, but one file (the Quake 3 bytecode
interpreter output) was almost certainly written by ID, and the only
permission they've given us to distribute it (as far as I know) is the blanket
GPL permission for Quake 3. This doesn't allow us to link it to the non-GPL'd
rest of the compiler :-(
