submitted a patch for bzflag so that it can be run as a server as well
I suspect that games like openarena and alienarena only need an init
script that calls the app with the appropriate -daemon/-server/-network
flags. I would also strongly recommend that any/all -server subpackages
include a -selinux subpackage as well, for enhanced security. I will
volunteer to help anyone who wants to add the -server and -selinux
subpackages to existing games.
