You like to package chess game data for small,small-to-medium,medium and
large "opening books"? Should this really be part of Debian?
I guess that although we have some games in our distribution there once was
a consensus that so large data packages should not be part of the main 
distribution because we already have 3-4 CDs and this would just bloat it
and too few people are really interested in it.

I would suggest you to package this crafty game and maybe the small variant
to give a starting point and then point out somewhere that better/larger
opening books can be downloaded on the internet.
