(Hello Games Team)

Thank you for the support and initial pointers, I would indeed like to
attempt to bring the existing packaging up to Debian's standards. I've
downloaded hopefully all I need to get started, including the engine,
game data, getdeb package outputs and the playdeb packaging repo. I'm
just looking at getting initial Alioth access setup for uploading the
orig tarball and sharing the dsc etc.
