It is my understanding of the rules that a swallow must promote to a goose when it moves into the promotion zone. Promotion is mandatory.
I had a game where a swallow did not promote. It appears that the rules have not been properly programed with respect to this point.
Would someone take a look at this?
I agree with David Rockwell.
According to http://www.chessvariants.org/shogivariants.dir/tori.html:
Whenever a 'Swallow' or 'Falcon' makes a move wholly or partly within the Promotion Zone the piece assumes its promoted rank. The 'Swallow' promotes to a 'Goose' and a 'Falcon' becomes an 'Eagle'.
It should be noted that unlike in Shogi, promotion is compulsory.
Is there a way to submit a request that programming be fixed (as time permits)?
