In the comments on the github page you write:

Note that due to its size, the two-sided bearoff database gnubg_ts0.bd 
is currently not packaged.

Maybe you could package a smaller two-sided database ? The default one 
with 6 checkers is 7M but one with only 4 checkers is much smaller 
(350k). You can create it with "makebearoff -t 6x4 -f gnubg_ts0.bd".

If I remember correctly, for some time Russ Allbery had been reluctant 
to install it in the Debian port (but the issue was the time that may be 
needed to compute it at installation time, not its size per se).

I suppose that, when these databases were introduced, it has been 
studied how the two-sided one improved accuracy over the one-sided one 
for various numbers of checkers left. Does anyone has these results ?
