This team already has one or more members who are active FOSS game
engine/graphic developers, so code development is not out of the
question.

This team may act in some part I hope as a discussion area that can
cover games already in Ubuntu and things that maybe wanted in the
future. Already some bugs related to games in Ubuntu have been pushed
towards the team and have begun to be processed - so things are moving
already.

This team I hope will also be an area for subjects related to what about
Ubuntu may obstruct game development and make things easier in future
for those who wish to produce games and content etc. But that is a
discussion for later.

Phil
