[draft] prerequisite for an AI to be added as submodule to spring

1. licensed as GPL2+
2. must integrate into the existing build system
3. git repository is hosted spring organization at github: https://github.com/spring/
4. doesn't add new external dependencies
5. has no git submodules
6. can play at least one game in spring
7. no compile warnings (clang + gcc) with "default" springs compile flags
8. no "bloat" (i.e. directly adding large amounts of source code from other projects like boost)

explanation / reasons:
1. nothing to explain here
2. cmake currently is a must. adding a new build system just for an ai is way to much work
3. git repositories can vanish: when stored on a single place the risk that sth. breaks because of this is pretty low
4. spring already has a lot of external dependencies. the more dependencies it has the more difficult is it to compile and maintain it: it should be kept simple
5. see 3. + 4. also it slows down cloning
6. thats the minimal requirement to be useful

questions? suggestions?

What does this mean for AIs written in languages such as Java or python that require dependencies such as the JVM?

The ai-interfaces are no submodules: the ai only depends on the interface beeing present.
