License of Doom3-BFG
Dear d-legal team,
I'm currently intend to package rbdoom3bfg from
https://github.com/RobertBeckebans/RBDOOM-3-BFG and I'd like to have an
second eye on the license conditions set up by id Software.
I think they are both GPL-compatible and DFSG free, but as said I'd love
to have an review. (The package has to go to contrib as there is no free
standalone game data available, at least none known to me)
The license is online at:
NOTE: I'm *not* subscribed.
