You are welcome.  Do review the changes because I was doing it fairly
blindly.     FYI,   I have been discussing with freedoom upstream about
doing more regular releases and have updated the current package to the
latest git snapshot locally.   I will post the changes for review after
I get some input from upstream.

I think you are in a better position to do what it is necessary here but
I will be happy to review any new packages.   I have already built
Chocolate Doom for Rawhide and Fedora 16 and have been reading up on the
status of the various Doom "ports"  for the last few days to figure out
which ones to package.   I will post on a update on that too a bit later. 


Ps:  In case anyone is wondering,  Doom was one of the games I spend a
lot of time with in a previous life and recent news of the upcoming Doom
3 engine source release motivated me to get involved with Doom again now.
