Removal of illegal packages

Hi there,

It is with much regret that I have to ask you to remove the following
packages from your repositories,

blobwars (Blob Wars : Metal Blob Solid)
starfighter (Project: Starfighter)
blobAndConquer (Blob Wars : Blob And Conquer)
viruskiller (Virus Killer)

It has been brought to my attention by a Happy Penguin regular, leileilol,
that the packages contain resources that are non-free and, in some cases,
ripped from other games and still copyrighted. They should all be removed
immediately to avoid any legal issues.

It would be within the interests of all if we could get these games removed
ASAP so that your distributions are not affected by any legal issues.

Please could you forward this email along to any one else you may know who
is a package maintainer.

Thank you,

Stephen Sweeney
