it's nice to see people being interested in extending trigger! YAY!

some weeks ago i talked to stefan potyra who's in the 'uploaders' field
of the trigger package. he told me that trigger upstream isn't active
anymore, but stefan has access to the trigger subversion (or was it
cvs?) repository! since i also made 3 maps for trigger, which i
consider good enough to be included withing the trigger upstream
repository i asked him to include them, but he was too busy at that

so i think we should manage to get good trigger maps into trigger and
perhaps make stefan do a new relase ;) in this case i'd suggest to have
all maps covered by the gpl, since all other trigger game content is
covered by the gpl and i prefer to avoid "yes, but..." situations ;)

if things go wrong or it turns out this is a bad idea we still can fall
back and create a maps addon package for trigger.
