Yes there are, in fact quite a few. Thank you for the suggestion, I
will change the package name.

Yes, netradiant is the level editor. Upstream ships the source of
netradiant and q3map2 in the same package and I was concerned about
what to do so that the package will be future proof regarding the
possibility of packaging netradiant. Based upon your comment I will
keep the entire upstream source package and, in particular,
call it netradiant.

Yes, as far as I know. It appears that Rudolf Polzer (a Xonotic
developer) continued developing/maintaining netradiant after Nexuiz.
The other main flavour of radiant that is actively
developed is GtkRadiant, lead by Tim Besset. Netradiant merges many
patches from Gtkradiant but it does not officially support Darkplaces.
Thank you for your comments!
