Title: Urban Terror in repos
Package Wishlist: Rejected by Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger)
reject reason: Not open source.
Requested by: Michal Hartlinski (majki-fajki)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org
Urban Terror is probably most well-known free FPS game. Unfortunatly
it's not in official repos. I propose including it, along with modified
linux binary. (http:/www.www0.org/w/Optimized_executable;_builds_of_ioq3_engine_for_urt)
Business case (Partner benefit):
: Becouse we dont't only work, we need fun too!

The link is broken.
#2: Rafe Magnuson (rmagnuson) (2011-05-04 00:08:45)
Agreed. After a fresh install of any flavor of Linux one of the first
things I do is grab a copy of Urban Terror. Would be nice to include it
in the official repos just to make it easier for newcomers who might
otherwise be dissuaded by the command line installation method.

It's available in Packman:
rpm output: "This RPM Package contains only the binaries compiled for
your architecture. But you need the q3ut4 files/directory. Please
download the zip file at http://urbanterror.info/downloads/
the q3ut4 directory from the unzipped folder into /usr/lib
/urbanterror as root". Given that most users (probably) install
software from YaST and thus won't see this message, the package could
be considered "broken".
Fully working deb package can be found here:
Is it possible to
convert it to rpm, adapt to openSUSE and include in the next release?

Ok, I'm not really into all this packaging stuff, but I'll try to build
it and send to the games. Thanks for pointing me in the right

Remark about urban terror. Version 4.1.1 is open source GPLv2 while the
upcoming urban terror HD isn't anymore. http://www.urbanterror.info/hd/
That means that 4.1.1 will probably the first and last version in

Hi, all Since it's already been in Packman, what do we still want? It's
hard to include it in openSUSE:Factory thus official OSS. because
Factory/OSS is used to create the DVD. a DVD is only less than 5GB.
there's size problem instead of others preventing big games to be
included in OSS or what you called openSUSE 12.1 official repository.
Actually games is an official repository too, you can add it directly
in YaST without knowing its url.
So even if we submit it into games. We'll still use the same way to
install it as before.

+ The problem is that the package contains only binaries (please see my
+ earlier comment), so the game is not playable after installing.
