27-34: Regional modification of the lawIt is not necessary to remove it I think and it might be an advantage for
organization of regional RoboCup competitions
Agreed. At RCAP, we did not have astro turf only carpet. So we still need to run the competition
389-390: Magnetometer in softwareCurrently, the rules states that if there is any doubt, code must be
available to referees. If the use of the magnetometer is optional and
disabled in the software and there is another satisfying solution to break
the symetry of the field, rules do not state that this is a problem.
I think if there clearly is no magnetometer hw in the robot, then there should be no doubt and no need to check the software.
712: Scoring from the respective half of the fieldMy understanding: projection of the center of the ball should be on the
appropriate side of the field
That is correct and consistent with the way that we used other in/out decisions. Projection must be fully in the opponent half before a goal can be scored. To be consistent with the kick-off, that means before the ball is kicked into the goal. If you kick from your own half and it bounces off another player in the other half, that should not be goal.
812-813: Direct free kick in penalty areaI personally agree
895: Scoring from an indirect free kickI don't think so, the 10 seconds allow the robots from the other team to
touch the ball, but it has no impact on being allowed to score a goal
10 sec. rule only applies to the defending team, which should be allowed to score after 10 secs. if the ball is not in play before that..
1130, 1178: Replacing the ball after goal-kick + corner-kickI think that current formulation is satisfying enough since placement of
the ball is always up to the referee and depend on the position of robots,
thereis no need to overspecify it.
