  Description     : educational robot battle simulation with robots coded in Python

Your task is to create a computer program to control a robot for the
arena. The last robot alive is the winner.

pybotwar was inspired by the game RobotWar that existed for the Apple ][ in
the early 1980s. However, the method of coding is more akin to the style of
programs used for the FIRST robotics competition, where a particular
user-defined method is called repeatedly (60 times per second in this case)
and must finish in a set amount of time to avoid putting the robot in to an
error state and disabling it.

FIRST Robotics Competition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIRST_Robotics

Pybotwar depends on two python modules that are not yet packaged for Debian:

pygsear - http://www.nongnu.org/pygsear
(pygsear makes getting started with pygame simpler.)
http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/pygsear

pybox2d - pybox2d.googlecode.com
(2d physics simulation)

I'll take a look at packaging this, along with the pygsear recommends.
