==== Description: ====
A GUI to play arbitrary board games, aiming to be completely extensible by
plugins, written in python.

Project purposes include:

- trying ideas about a tagua/kaya-like GUI suitable for inclusion on OpenMoko
devices (that means, no ruby and not forcing the use of kde), so that one can
get a suitable goban to help in studying games while in the train. And since
Qt is not included by default in om2009 or shr, not forcing qt either - so for
now it is using gtk, although it should be easy to add support for other GUI.

- experimenting with various programing techniques in python, like the
component-oriented approach (others to come, like design-by-contract).

Currently supports: Chess (and 5x5 variant), Shogi, Minishogi, Go, Checkers;
hexagonal boards under developement. Some of them have "undo" support,
handicap choice, external AI support.

Major features still missing include: more AI support, save/load, network
play, refuse *all* invalid moves. See README for more details. 

==== Other Software Required: ====
Primary deps:
- python
- pyxdg: - LGPL

Deps for the gtk GUI plugins:
- pygtk, pygobject, pycairo:, LGPL
- python-rsvg (from gnome-python-desktop):, LGPL

==== Other Comments: ====
By mistake I have just registered this project on gna, not realizing they do
not provide git support (got lured by the nifty stats support).  Please do not
reject submission based on that other project - I have followed up on the
submission ticket there asking for its removal (

Source code is currently hosted ar - there is
no release yet, the link below is to a snapshot.
