/me thought, "openracer" was a split off, while the tuxracer authors decided
to relicence it with their last release.

Yes, since april every game, which is distributed directly, must have
passed a "test" and must show a label, telling everybody, how old you
must be to get the game. If don't have the money for teh test, you
don't get the label, and you are not allowed to give it to children.
