Dear Miriam,

I have very bad feelings when I read the name of this game. It is a very
bad taste play on the word "sturmbahnführer", which is a rank which was
only awarded in the SS divisions when Germany was ruled by the nazis. If
you google with "sturmbahnfahrer", you will not find any page which is
not related to the game: this word does not exist in German.

Maybe you could ask the upstream authors if they could consider renaming
their game before including it in Debian? Otherwise, well, do what you
want. But this name is really disgusting.

Have a nice day,
