  1. I think that everything starting from “Request for Comments” could be moved to https://petanquelibre.wordpress.com/rfc/, and each new version should again add a link to the RFC page.

    It looks like the RFC idea has been sinking a bit, yet I think PL is a valuable variant of petanque.

    (Note that the CONTACT page link is broken.)


    1. Hi Alex–
      Thanks for your comment. PL is rather a Quixotic endeavor and it’s always nice to get positive feedback.

      Note the page where you left your comment is for an obsolete version of the rules. There have been 5 versions since 2.1. You can find the current version at https://petanquelibre.wordpress.com/rules/.

      Another version is being prepared and should be available soon. At this point, the rules themselves are pretty stable and I’m trying to simplify the language and eliminate unusual technical terms, in order to make it easier to translate the text into French.

      Unfortunately, the RFC idea didn’t work out, and it has been abandoned.


      1. I’m pretty aware of the recent versions 😉

        But I now understand the RFC idea was abandoned. Anyway, anyone can still provide inputs, so I guess the spirit of the RFC remains.
