The question is not completely academic.  Just today I got an email from
one of the organizers of the Computer Olympiad of this year.  He asked if
we wanted to defend our gold medal from last year.  See for more info.

I haven't answered yet since I wanted to run the question by the list.  If
nobody wants to go to Israel, I suggest that we try to do it the same way
as last year - to have a volounteer run Gnu Go for us.

In this case it might be a good idea to get a release out during early or
middle June.  The tournament is during the first week of July.

Do we have any prize money left for the starting fees?
