If CB and A Silver sell this engine and it turns out to be Leela they can get into legal trouble unless they take some steps from stopping that. E.g. revealing that it is leela in the first place, publicly releasing any difference in the code etc.dkappe wrote: ↑Wed Aug 14, 2019 8:22 amWhy should I have to acknowledge anything about DeusX or lc0? DeusX has nothing to do with me, other than that i’ve also trained alternate and unusual nets (and contributed in small ways to the source code of the project) and feel a great deal of sympathy for A Silver whenever the mean girls turn out in force.Actually I think it has not much sense to discuss with you or Silver, you showed already the same behaviour
after you were criticized after DeusX for not acknowleding the effort of LC0.
TCEC rules are actually very good so it doesn't get cluttered up with a hundred Leelas with some different net. The problem with A. Silver I have is that he just said it is HIS ENGINE which is a lie straight from hell. Only after the interview with Cato it became clear what was going on. People were legitimately upset with him. Maybe TCEC rules would be different if Silver wasn't such a secretive person.
Edit: There's a great example on how to behave: Ethereal.
There's a list of all things that are ideas from other engines even though it is in fact a unique engine. That is what open source should be like - complete transparency and not being ashamed that you implemented other peoples ideas while at least acknowledging their hard work and genius.
