Goat is a tournament organizer assistant. It is designed to help run long tournaments that are primarily organized by email, such as Toulouse's Permanent Go Tournament, where a round is played each month, and it's up to the players to arrange their meeting time and place. Experience has shown that players need reminders to play their games, give results, etc. Goat helps to automate this management. After pairing the players, the tournament admin will enter the pairings into Goat, and Goat will take over all the remaining business.

Release Notes: This is a massive rewrite. Data is now stored in a smarter format that allows you to save all rounds in one file. Data is no longer stored in Ssf, but using Data::Dumper (experiments with XML proved to be unusable). The code has been reorganised into modules. Helper programs have been added to register a list of players from an address book, export the status of games in HTML, and create new rounds from a Gotha pairing file.
