Re: Trusted testers wanted

Sorry, but you simply can not do this. A GPL program is GPL. Only the author can change that. You can not release a modified version and restrict it to be something less than GPL. You should read the GPL to see why. I am not a lawyer, but my opinion is that Volker is clearly allowed to do what he d...

Re: Cutechess-cli: A command line tool for engine-engine mat

Btw, the config file issue, which you asked about previously, is still open. The current .ini format isn't good for hand-editing, so we'll probably create a custom file format.

Re: Cutechess-cli: A command line tool for engine-engine mat

Hi Iljari A small suggestion : In the present state (v0.1.7) "-book" is a general option that applies to both engines.
