Bug#343332: ITP: libtour8 -- tournament processing library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libtour8
  Version         : 0.9.6

  Description     : tournament processing library

 libtour is a generic tournament processing library written in
 C++. Rules, teams and schedule of a tournament are defined in the
 Scheme programming language (Guile) and given to the library as
 input. What makes libtour generic is the fact that it only expects
 the structure of a tournament be described, and does not know anything 
 else about it. Therefore it is possible to make libtour interpret 
 virtually any sporting tournament.
 Scheme language seems a perfect choice for tournament definitions as it
 allows to easily intermix data and processing logic. Guile interpreter
 packaged as a library (libguile) makes it simple to mix C and Scheme
 function calls. Many thanks to the people who made Guile happen.
