split of the data-files as a noarch package and make it nosrc.rpm.
You can also use the autodownloader package from packman, so the user must do 
the download of the data-files and you provide only a small script to manage 
the installation. See package itself for details. I used autodownloader often 
for such large games (e.g. Wop, urbanterror, rott, trepidation, vavoom, 
quake3, ..)

The noarch packages exist only once, otherwise the size of this package will 
multiply per two or three (depends on possible ppc-build) per disribution.
i586.rpm, x86_64.rpm, ppc.rpm, src.rpm ...

normally we don't host packages :)
you should join the team and maintain your packages yourself in the packman
