In fact I'm even not sure we can distribute it at all, for the same reasons as 
- media have various licenses, depending on the contributor (lots of them)
- according to the above readme, some media may even have no license at all
- according to Fedora, some of those licenses restrict commercial use, and our 
policy does not allow non-free software with redistribution restrictions.

So unless someone digs into the media files, looks at the licences, removes 
media files with unclear or too restrictive licenses (and that the game still 
works after that), then we must drop it. Otherwise it must go to non-free.

Best regards
