  Description     : ./play.it game scripts collection

./play.it is a packages generator for commercial games, that is already included in the contrib section of Debian repositories: https://wiki.debian.org/Games/PlayIt

Starting with its 2.14 release, its development has been splitted over two repositories: one including the library and main wrapper, following a cycle of stable feature releases and bugfix releases, and one including the collection of game scripts, with no stable releases.

Starting with its 2.16 release, the game scripts are no longer included in the main repository. That means that we can not update the Debian package to builds more recent than the current 2.15.1 without making it useless to most users.

By adding this package providing the main game scripts collection, we would unlock the ability to update the library and main wrapper up to the most current upstream build (2.18.0 at the time of writing this ITP).

I wish to maintain this new package under the Games team umbrella, while still planning to handle the updates myself most of the time. I hope the sponsor of the current play.it package (Phil Morrell) will be OK with sponsoring this package too, otherwise I hope someone else from the Games team would be willing to sponsor it.
