This is my first package so obviously comments are welcome. This
package only contains the engine. The data files are distributed as a
few separate archives. According to their wiki the data files are
available under a free(ish) license (CC BY-NC-SA 2.5). A few separate
packages will have to be made for those I guess? I'm not sure how to
include multiple source files in a single package, if this is even
supported.

UQM uses a pretty custom looking build system so I had to replace all
phases of the build, but it appears to work now. After installation the
games starts and the dies complaining about missing data files.

Hello Adam, and welcome! Nice work for a first package. :-)

Unfortunately CC BY-NC-SA can not be included in Guix since it disallows
commercial redistribution. Do you know if there are any freely
redistributable data files available?

See 'hyperrogue' and 'git' for a couple of examples of having multiple
"origins".

The patch looks good to me. Now we just need some data files :-)

Crap, I hadn't actually checked the license of the content until I was
basically done with the engine. I see debian has packaged the content
into their "non-free" repository.

There does not appear to be any free data files, and the developers
appear to have been fairly insistant on choosing the non-commercial
creative commons license which is disappointing.

Oh well, it's probably not worth including this package unless we can
get free data files. Due to the age of the game, perhaps the developers
could be persuaded into changing the license. I mights send the an
email to ask.

Note that the GNU FSDG are more liberal than Debian’s guidelines when it
comes to “non-functional data” such as game artwork:


That said, the “NC” bit can probably cause practical problems, such as
if someone sells a GuixSD DVD, or if a company runs ‘guix publish’ and
happens to redistribute the thing.

Regardless, thanks for your work, Adam!

Yes, the "NC" part is problematic, see:

Note that, at least for non-functional data: the GNU FSDG is more
"strict" towards system distributions than the free/libre software
philosophy is to software in general.

For the first, the work must allow freedom 2 entirely. For the latter,
only the "share" part of freedom 2.
