There are problems with this:

 * repoview is not always updated (right now for example, many games are 

* when a game changes its version, the repoview link for the game changes too. 
Linking to the index page on repoview is not practical for detailed game 
pages. The index page on repoview is already created on /wiki/Games

* repoview page only contains the installed size

* All the information will be used in a Fedora Gaming Guide (formal 
documentation) and it is preferable that we do not use external links.

* Games tend not to change its download/install size frequently. Only on major 
changes (less frequently). They are not frequently updated too :-)

* There is no good way to sync these informations automatically from the rpm 
file and putting into Wiki/Docbook/etc.

Good idea, later this could be discussed with the Extras SIG on Games:
