Dear GNU Go people,

I am running a computer Go Tournament on KGS, this Sunday.  I would like
to attract a variety of entrants, both to test the KGS automated
tournament system, and to test the entrants' ability to co-operate with

In my invitation to the event, posted to the computer Go mailing list, I
wrote "Authors should enter their own programs – copies of
public-domain programs such as GnuGo may apply, but will only be entered
if there is a shortage of other entries."  I realise now that this may
have been misinterpreted.  I have nothing against Gnu GO itself - I just
wanted to avoid a bunch of clones of Gnu GO, submitted by people who
were not in fact contributors to the Gnu GO project.

I hope that someone involved with Gnu GO will enter a version of it for
this event.  Or even several versions.  But I would prefer them to be
submitted by people who have contributed to the code, or by their
representatives, rather than people who have merely downloaded it and
compiled it.

For information about the tournament, and how to enter it, see

Best wishes,
