Spec URL:
Description: GemRB (Game engine made with preRendered Background) is a portable Open Source implementation of BioWare's Infinity Engine which was written to support pseudo-3D role playing games based on the Dungeons & Dragons ruleset (like Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment).

This is neat stuff, and I'd love to have it in Fedora.  However, because this doesn't do anything unless you go out and buy (or steal) a copy of an infinity engine game, it's unfortunately not really appropriate for Fedora.  This is the same policy that keeps, say, Exult out of the distribution.  (xu4, which I maintain, is right on the edge because U4 data can be freely downloaded at runtime.)  I don't really agree with this policy but that's the way it is.  If you disagree you're welcome to make a case on the devel list, of course; maybe enough folks will agree and the policy can be changed.

I would suggest you look into rpmfusion for this package.

This is bizarre; why not just close the ticket instead of changing the summary to something meaningless?
