I have a slackbuild for a game of which the sourc ecode is gpl and is on 
github, but the game data has to be purchased. As such the game homepage 
has a link to itch.io to buy the game which provides a personalised link 
fora gz of the source including the extra game data, as well as a 
pre-compiled binary.  I can include an md5sum for this source file, but 
obviously can't provide a direct download link.
all you have to do is buy it (£1 minimum) and put the source tar.gz 
which includes the game data in the same folder as the build script as 
Is that eligible for slackbuilds.org ? obviously to respect the author's 
data, resulting package would have to be for personal use.
regards, Tim
