Official Mirror:
Some software (usually games) requires certain data files to operate, sometimes these datafiles can be freely downloaded but may not be redistributed and thus cannot be put into so called packages as part of a distro. autodownloader is a tool which can be used as part of a package to automate the download of the needed files. It will prompt the user explaining to him the need of the download and asking if it is ok to make an internet connection, after this it will show the license of the to be downloaded files and last it will do the actual download and md5 verification off these files. This whole process can be configured by the packager through a simple configuration file. Notice that Autodownloader while open source itself, may download files which are not permitted to be (re)distributed unlike most files in Fedora.
