does it use the same format as gnuchess, so that it could be used as a drop-in 
replacement?

Well gnuchess is mostly supposed to be used as a backend for graphical chess 
programs such as knights or xboard.

So i was wondering if this package could be used too as a backend for already 
existing chess GUIs that are already in debian.

Check out this page please: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_engine#Protocols

Personally i don't like the idea of a chess engine that uses it's own private 
protocol rather than a well known one, so that both parts (engine and gui) 
could be used independently from each other, so perhaps you could confirm or 
deny wether it uses an already existing protocol or not?

Thanks

Hi,

I think it's an alternate to gnuchess, with a more friendly layout. It's
a ncurses with a real board displayed on the screen. With gnuchess, I've
just tried, it seems everything is in pure commandline. So the format is
a bit different.

Thanks,

Regards,

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of cheops-chess back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting cheops-chess, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 647061 ITP: cheops-chess -- C Chess Engine
 owner 647061 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <647061@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
