Package: blockade
Severity: serious

The file COPYING contains this :

  |  The Macintosh version claims to have been written by Christer Ericson,
  |  and provided a contact address (christer@cs.umu.se).  I wrote to that
  |  address, asking permission to write an X version; the reply granted
  |  permission, and gave permission to use the built-in scenes from the Mac
  |  version provided I credited the scene designers.

The permission to "use" the built-in scenes is not the same as a permission to
redistribute them.

Please CC the receiving package when doing that; otherwise all we get is
the control@ output.  (Hurrah for BTS mboxes.)

Removal hint added for testing and a clone made for stable.
