You could offer your help on OpenGameArt forums [1] or submit your work on that site.

Please consider Markus' comment on licensing though. Remixes or "re-interpretations" of proprietary game soundtracks can't be free to use without permission by the copyright holders.

Are there known games in Debian with license-problematic game data? I have contributed to various projects to eliminate copyright/trademark problematic data in the past (SuperTuxKart, Trigger Rally) and would be glad to do it again.

I was thinking about creating a "games-music" package myself that
includes a couple of free music files of different genres. This is
mainly because I have to replace the whole soundtrack of M.A.R.S, a game
I intend to package but I think other packages like foobillardplus could
also recommend or depend on it.

Having the same music in different games is not desirable to players or game creators.

I would instead recommend to seek varied replacement from OpenGameArt's Music section [2].

@all: Please let me know if there is any interest within the Games Team
to create such a general free music package, then I would propose some
tracks from Jamendo and take Hans de Goede's list into account. [1] Of
course we can still update the package with new and different songs later.
