It is still useful and works. It is better than running the original game under dosbox, because of the power savings (ah, and the save/restore feature available at any point). I was quite surprised to find it in maemo and not in Debian :) It is also listed on the http://wiki.debian.org/Games/Suggested page. As for the non-free data, this won't be the first package in such situation. The "contrib" section is just for it. Do you see a reason to avoid including reminiscence to Debian? > > Any objections if I move the packaging to Git (still under > > pkg-games umbrella)? This still stands.
