Ingo Ruhnke <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: RoboVasion
System name: robovasion
Type: non-GNU

RoboVasion will be a Real Time Strategie game somewhat similar to Warcraft, 
Starcraft, Command&Conquer or Total Annihilation, meaning the player will 
controll a handfull of units, build a base, build more units and attack the 
other party. RoboVasion will use the Freecraft engine as a base and add new 
graphics and game rules as necessary. The game will take place in a futuristic 
environment with robot-drones and other hightech. Due to the throuble with 
Blizzard in the last few days, it is required to rename the Freecraft engine 
before actually using it inside RoboVasion, see:

Beside the name there doesn't seem to be a legal problem with the Freecraft 
engine and the shutdown by the last maintainers seems to be more due to a lack 
of motivation, than due to actually throuble with Blizzard. The latest source 
code of Freecraft is:

The currently temporary Webpage of RoboVasion is at:

RoboVasion will reuse the Freecraft engine directly (after renaming and some 
cleanup), instead of requiring the user to download it seperatly, which isn't 
possible at the moment since the original Freecraft project has been shutdown. 
A later clean split between the engine and RoboVasion is planed, but will most 
likly happen under a new project.
