Re: Removal of illegal packages

The offending data is music, sound effects and graphics for all packages (blobwars, blobAndConquer, viruskiller and starfighter).

Thanks for notifying us! Can you send us more information regarding which files
are non-free and in each case, in what way? If the non-free content consists of
just for a few images or music files, the Debian way is to remove only the
offending content from the upstream source.
