so I made an initial games cleanup list open for discussion.
Please use this thread for discussion, and the wiki page to add
comments/games to the list.
Further note that most of the games have only a maintainer set for one
That's probably caused by the dashboard glitch that accidentally orphaned
packages a while ago.
Two of the games are without maintainer and are only in one repo.
I should add that I don't know most (if any) of the games, so it may
be that some games are popular.
It might be nice to know which ones are still working and building. I
think that the 2 games which are not in x86_64 don't build anymore.
Eventually, we'll need to rebuild them all to have the licence included in
the package. If they don't build anymore and if there are no patches/fixes
out there, it's no use to fix their licence in svn.

When I was adding licenses last week I went through the games
category. I know we don't have a lot of games in our repo
(relatively), but some just seem to be there for historic purposes.
I'll start making a list of most ancient games for you to comment on
which we can delete. That is, if nobody says something like 'please
don't remove them, I like playing old games'
