-----Notes to Modmakers-----

If you want to use the Greate Statesman Mod in your mod I have tried to make 
things as easy as possible for you. In the XML files modified sections are 
enclosed by:
<!--                          -->
<!--  Great Statesman Start   -->
<!--                          -->
and
<!--                          -->
<!--  Great Statesman End     -->
<!--                          -->

In the Python files I have added #<GS START> and #<GS END> in all of the 
places that I have made changes to the original files. I have also included 
the Specialist Stacker Mod v0.7 of CvMainInterface.py file.

All I ask is that you give me credit.


-----Version Information-----

-----v0.9.x------

- Updated CvMainInterface.py to actually read in the INI variables for the 
  great statesman. This part of the code was forgotten somehow when the update 
  happened in the v0.9 version.

- Updated all python code and XML to be compatible with the v1.61 patch.


-----v0.8------

- Updated the buildings that give out great person points, free specialists and
  allow citizen specialization using OzzyKP's recommendation as a guide.
  
- Fixed the issue addressed by talchas in his action buttons mod comp where 
  sometimes an exception is thrown when a action button ID number is used.

- Added the option allowing players to specify if players changing their legal
  civic option to bureaucracy should give them free statesmen in their capital
  city. 
  
- Added the option allowing players to specify the number of free statesmen 
  that should be added to a player's capital city if they changed their legal
  civic option to bureaucracy.

  choosing the bureaucracy legal civic option.

  added by choosing the bureaucracy legal civic option.
