Free World War I scenario package available for LGeneral

k.u.k General created by Steve McGuba has now been released by him under a CC-BY-SA 3.0 license, so finally Markus Koschany at Debian was able to create a package out of it. It is available as a tarball at LGeneral's project page as well (it does not require the original PG data). It still needs a lot of tweaking to become real fun but it is actually already great to have this as a free game content for LGeneral. If you could give it a try (just download, extract and copy to the LGeneral installation directory) and report back any issues you encounter to Markus Koschany it were really helpful. You can file bug reports at https://packages.debian.org/unstable/lgeneral-data . Thanks and enjoy! [end]
