You mean in the "Free Projects | Games" section?

Accepted. At least for now.

(1) You mean linuxgames.com, right?
(2) The Linux Game Tome (http://www.cs.washington.edu/homes/tlau/tome/)
already is a really big list (BTW: Are the linuxgames.com ppl aware of that
(3) I'd use "Projects that are under active development, except the tiny
ones" as the criterion (sp?) for being listed on our site. "Active
development" because that's what most free game developers are most
interested in (plus perhaps an "open source games" link archive) and
"except the tiny ones" because these written-in-one-day things propably
aren't very interesting...

But as I think of it...point 3 is crap ;) We should have links to all open
source games, divided up in categories (e.g. Size, used SDKs, ...) and start
featuring one of them each month.

Plus there should be some "Games created with this SDK" in the SDK section
(propably not differentiating between open/closed source)

Right. Agreed.
