RE: [Bug-gnubg] Computer Olympiad

Hi all,

We've got our plans in place to take gnubg to the Olympiad now.

There will be 3 programs, gnubg, bgblitz and a new program based on
monte-carlo methods. Should be interesting. We plan to play best of 3, 15
point matches.

I need to fill in the registration.

I was looking for a reference on the site which would tell me who to
attribute the development too.

Is there a general way to approach this for GNU software.

How do you all think I should attribute the authorship in the entry form?

It would be a pleasure to be there also, planning those days to be in
There is a - live - backgammon tournament on Saturday evening. Maybe combine
"business" backgammon with pleasure backgammon ?

Achim Mueller will communicate his settings of the previous Olympiade, won't
you Achim?

It looks as if the latest 0.16 is the one to choose. Anyone commenting on
