This is a problem with Marathon Aleph One, as far as I can tell. Aleph
One has been in ITP for 423 days (#119911). This, however, does have
shareware data files that could go in to non-free, and there is the
possibility of complete mods that may be free, although I haven't had a
chance to look for them yet. If rott does get packaged without data
files, then perhaps the same should be done for Aleph One (which would
probably have to be hijacked, since 423 days indicates a dead ITP).
