Most of the games which have Requires: autodownloader are entirely useless without the non-Free, non-redistributable content downloaded using autodownloader.

In addition, several games ship redistributable, but non-modifiable data (same rules as for firmware). The autodownloader stuff is data which doesn't even comply with the relaxed guidelines for firmware and game data (e.g. because it is not redistributable at all or only non-commercially).

If you think this situation is not acceptable, you can bring it up at FESCo or even the Fedora Board.

My statement was speaking as a Board member, not as my opinion (though I do share it). If games do not meet this, they must be removed.
