1. Let's try to clear out under what license the audio files are released. 
   I read the following on the upstream site: "ASC is distributed under 
   the terms of the Gnu General Public License (the license Linux 
   uses too), which basically means the game is free, the complete source 
   code is available and you can do everything with it as long as it 
   remains free."

   There is no indication on download section of what license is used for 
   the audio files.

   The best would be to have such a statement from the author and include 
   it in your source package.

   BTW, the debian package also state that this is GPL'ed, but again, 
   without any further explaination.

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2007-04-20 12:08:33 UTC
AFAIK the music is an integral part of ASC, its just distributed separately from
the source so that people don't have a huge download each new release.

Since its in integral part, its under the same license.

"Proof" of it being in integral part is tihs ./configure message when building
the asc package:

configure: WARNING:
The following music files could not be found: data/music/frontiers.mp3
data/music/time_to_strike.mp3 data/music/machine_wars.mp3  .
The music files are not distributed together with the source code because
of their size. ASC can run without the music files being present, this message
is just to inform you about the existence of the music.

Notice how they give the size as the only reason for the separate distribution,
they don't say anything about it being under a different license.


If this is not good enough I can mail upstream to ask. I'm afraid google is of
no use in locating the composer of the music himself. (I already tried to find
his contact info before submitting this for review).

Comment 3 Andrea Musuruane 2007-04-20 19:34:09 UTC
It is good enough for me.
