Brendan Becker <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: expat
Other License: until version 0.5.5, pyDDR was provided under an almost-expat 
license, but not quite. this license is still included for historical purposes, 
but is not the active license. pyDDR now contains a license that specifies 
which license it is and a verbatim copy of the license.
Package: pyDDR
System name: pyddr
Type: non-GNU

PyDDR is a clone of a popular dance simulator called Dance Dance Revolution. 
The game logic is written completely in Python with Pygame\\\\\\\'s bindings to 
C/SDL for multimedia.Dance Dance Revolution, or DDR for short, is a game where 
the player uses a dancing mat and dances on set patterns of arrows 
(\\\\\\\"dance steps\\\\\\\") in time to music that the game plays. Depending 
on how in-time the player is with the steps s/he\\\\\\\'s supposed to step on, 
a letter grade is given at the end of the song. PyDDR aims to do everything 
that DDR is capable of doing while adding new features, visual effects, and 
interface options. One of the pluses of using pyDDR over regular DDR is that 
one can create his/her own music and then write dance steps to the song, or 
synchronise steps to already-existing music.Currently, some of these features 
are implemented, and the game is playable. However, in the future, pyDDR will 
be a full-featured dancing simulator, also supporting other dancing games such 
as ParaParaParadise, which allows you to wave your hands over sensors instead 
of stepping on floor panels. Two-or-more player play and netplay are planned, 
as well as a possible future release with steps timed to the author\\\\\\\'s 
own music.The project is already in development and you can download the latest 
release from

Other Software Required:
PyDDR needs, at minimum, Python 2.1 and Pygame 1.4.9, which in turn depends on 
Numeric 21.0 (preferred version), SDL 1.2.4, SMPEG, SDL_mixer 1.2.4, SDL_image, 
freetype2, and SDL_ttf. The SDL libs are best installed in the order listed.

Other Comments:
PyDDR is actively developed, supported, and discussed. You can contact a live
