[opensuse-buildservice] Repository for commercial games with FOSS code
Hello fellow packagers !

I was wondering whether it would be a good idea to add a new project
for commercial games for which the source code is open.

The purpose is to have them integrated with the system (path and
library-wise) when they don"t provide packages themselves.

Some examples are:
- Aquaria
- Revenge of the titans
- Frogatto
- maybe Minecraft one day, as told by its developer.
There might be more in the future.

The project name could simply be "games:commercial", containing
packages with only the source code.

One problem is to make it easy for people who bought the games to
copy/install the non-free game data. We need some kind of script or
GUI application that can locally create a RPM based on the game data
and/or original game archive, then install that RPM on the local

Another problem is that the only people who can package these games
properly are the ones who own them, else they won't be able to test
the packages.

What do you think ?
