You can put it up on Savannah or Gna! (  SourceForge is
of course an option too, but I omitted it because of a personal distaste ;)

Aha, this makes sense.  GNU Go is weak in the beginning of the game and any
improvement is of course very desirable.  We will be very interested in C
code, if you produce it.

One point: if you want to directly contribute to GNU Go, you will need to
assign copyright to Free Software Foundation.  Are you willing to do this?

It is usually best to post to address@hidden unless you really intend
to mail someone personally.  If you are going to work on GNU Go, it also
makes sense to subscribe to the list, but it is not required: posting for
non-members is unrestricted.
