I don't see that pulling in the games is a good idea. The release process is
that only blockers should be pulled in right now, though that is being
bent a little. There should be some clarification done in that regard for
the next release, but there is no way these game updates are in that category.
While the risk that they would break other things seems very low, I don't
think starting out with a smaller updates repository at this point is worth
taking the risk. I might be convinced otherwise for a large package that
was on the default install as that could result in significant bandwidth
savings. But I don't think that applies to wesnoth or openarena.
