Does wasabi2d==1.2.0 bend/break rule no. 2 ?
While testing/judging, I noticed 2 games in the challenge are using:
in their respective requirements.txt
Because I've not yet heard of that engine, I went to take a look pypi.org, and to my surprise I saw there, that v1.0.0, the first release on pypi, was released exactly on 22nd of September 2019 and the required version stated above was actually released on the 29th of September. Also the documentation of wasabi2d appeared first on September 21st, when the rules state the following: "You are allowed to use existing libraries that have been available for at least one month before the challenge (and are well documented)".
This is my first PyWeek and I'm no expert on those rules or how to interpret them accurately, let alone on how PyWeek entrants usually judge such circumstances. For what it's worth, I feel like the 2nd and 3rd paragraph of rule 2 are being bent if not outright broken by using this library, first released on pypi on the first day of PyWeek 28 and the final version used, released on the very last day of PyWeek 28. And also the part of "and are well documented" don't meet the requirements. If I had found this library 1 month before the competition, I dare say, I would've not considered using it, mostly because of a lack of documentation at that point.
I'm looking forward to see what other contestants have to say to this, before I decide whether to tick that box or not...
(edit: added also missing/sparse documentation until the first day of the challenge)
