RFS: lugaru (new package)

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my packages "lugaru" and "lugaru-data".

* Package names   : lugaru
                  : lugaru-data
  Versions        : 0~20110520.1+hge4354+dfsg-1
                  : 0~20110520.1+hge4354-1
  Upstream Authors: Wolfire Games <http://www.wolfire.com>
                  : Neal Gompa <ngompa13@gmail.com>
                  : Alexander Monakov <amonakov@gmail.com>
                  : Côme BERNIGAUD <come.bernigaud@gmail.com>
                  : sf17k
* URL             : http://code.google.com/p/lugaru/
                  : http://www.wolfire.com/lugaru
* License         : GPL-2+, CC-BY-SA, "freeware"
  Section         : contrib/games
                  : non-free/games

They build these binary packages:
lugaru - third-person action game
lugaru-data - data for the third-person action game lugaru

The packages appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix the ITP bug: 626156 (and partly the RFP bug: 607965)

My motivation for maintaining this package is: It being a great indie game, having an active upstream, and being something one would expect to be packaged, being famously (though partly) Open Sourced.

History lesson:
Icculus <http://hg.icculus.org/icculus/lugaru> did the initial porting to GNU/Linux an was the initial repository when the source was released, the main hub has now moved to <http://code.google.com/p/lugaru/> from where the current packaging stems (with major contributions from the "r/amonakov-lugaru" an "p/lugaru-experimental" repositories). Inititally Only the source was freely licensed, Wolfire later licensed the game data as freeware, and recently a large chunk of it under CC-BY-SA. Not enough to package the whole into main currently though.

The packages can be found on mentors.debian.net:

The VCS for lugaru is up for inspection at http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-games/lugaru.git

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
