Patent concerns

Hi folks,

I hate for my first post to this mailing list to be a depressing one,
but I need to pass along some bad news.

Due to patent concerns, we won't be able to include any games in Fedora
which meet the following criteria:

A game where "targets" move across the screen to a predetermined point
or line, where the player hits a button/key/mouse click as the target(s)
crosses that point or line, and gets points.

This means:

No "Guitar Hero" clones.
No "Dance Dance Revolution" clones.

I need your help to make sure that we don't have any other games that
meet this criteria, either on the wish list or in Fedora.

If you're not sure, ask me.

Thanks in advance,
