Game policy


I now have a working package of rocks'n'diamonds, but before I unleash
it on the unexpecting and innocent public, there is a matter I would like
to have your input on.

This game has a built-in level editor. I have put the default levels
in /var/lib/games/rocksndiamonds/levels/, but I don't think this
directory should be writeable. If it is, then users could mess up
the levels for everyone. Not desirable on a multi-user system.

My suggestion is to make the directory non-writeable(755), and add
some instructions in README.debian, explaining how to set things up
if you trust your user(s) enough to let them edit old levels.

Is this OK? Any better suggestions?
