Or not, do we really want to add 1 gig per release, so 3 gigs for F-7 F-8 and
devel to the diskspace usage just for this one game?

Yes, here is what upstreams license info says:

"Urban Terror is distributed free over the Internet and is covered by the Quake
3SDK licence agreement [EULA]. The mod files may not be sold [in any form] or
distributed on physical media unless with permission from iD Software.

For further information on legal use of programs derived from Quake 3 source
code, please contact their respective authors."

This seems to stem from before quake3 itself was released under the GPL, we
could ask them to change this and maybe the are willing to allow unmodified
redistribution. But do we really want to carry those 3 Gigs?

Notice that the current package uses autodownloader, and thus works around the
current license. The current package is really nothing more then a bunch of
textfiles, I wanted to first add these to the quake3 rpm, but then Urban Terror
won't show up int "Add / Remove Programs" from the Applications menu.
