Apologies for the double RTP bug, nullmailer hiccup. I'm already
signed up via Alioth and have the package ready to be uploaded here:
git.debian.org/git/pkg-games/openmw.git

I'm being mentored by Scott Howard, which has been a trial by fire
experience. :)

You're right, it should go in contrib until our (OpenMW) Example Suite
(ES) is ready. For the time being, it should also be put in
experimental until we the 1.0 release.

As mentioned above, our ES is in development which allows for TCs and
other content to be used with OpenMW without Morrowind assets. At this
time however, OpenMW is only useful with Morrowind.
