Hello folks.

While hacking away on a new ebuild I came across the issue that
games.eclass apparently got banned from future use. The only references
I was able to dig up (apart from helpful people on IRC), were
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=566498 (games.eclass: use of
games group needs to be removed wrt 20151011 Council meeting)
(A mere deprecation notice).

In contrast, a simple "grep deprec /usr/portage/eclass/" gives numerous
deprecation warnings; just games.eclass is not among them.

Please provide some guidance how (community-)developers are supposed to
handle games (in particular wrt games.eclass) in the future. This also
includes usage of /usr/games/{bin/lib/share} etc.
