Please Read: Need help in replacing music in Fedora package



Hello interweb. I need help. (This is going out to a few places, as to
hopefully have it picked up)

One of my Fedora packages (rocksndiamonds) has a slight problem. Turns
out that some of its audio files are straight copies of music which was
used without permission.

Full details are here:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=245435

Rather than pull the game out of Fedora entirely, (it is pretty fun, and
the music is the only real blocker) I'd like to replace the music with
freely distributable music. So, this could be your big chance! 

Are you a musician? Is someone you know a musician? Would you be willing
to give us some music under a Creative Commons license (Attribution or
Attribution-ShareAlike only)?

The music we need replacement for is:

"Alchemy" by Ian Boddy, from "Drive" (emailed Ian)
"Czardasz" by Robert Pieculewicz, from "Czardasz" (emailed Robert, now
known as "Steve Allen")
"The Chase" by Propaganda, from "A Secret Wish" (could not find contact
info for Propaganda)
"Twilight Painter" by Tangerine Dream, from "Heartbreakers" (emailed
Eastgate Music & Media LTD, Management for Tangerine Dream)
"21st Century Common Man" by Tangerine Dream, from "Tyger" (emailed
Eastgate Music & Media LTD, Management for Tangerine Dream)
"Voyager" by The Alan Parsons Project, from "Pyramid" (emailed
permissions the-alan-parsons-project com)
"Network 23" by Tangerine Dream, from "Exit" (emailed Eastgate Music &
Media LTD, Management for Tangerine Dream)

I've emailed the contact points for the artists (when I could find
them), but I do not expect that they will be willing to permit the sound
sample use.

We don't need whole songs, just short sound samples that will endlessly
loop while the game plays. The clips do not need to be long, the longest
one in the above list is 14 seconds. The format needed is .wav.

If you're willing to help, please email me (tcallawa redhat com).
Without replacing this music, we'll have to remove this game from the
Fedora package collection.

Thanks in advance,
