Bug Description

I would like to export a round of pools to ClubKnight, and then import the completed pool-sheet data.

ClubKnight allows us to use devices which Smartpoule does not run on. (e.g. Blackberry tablets, Symbian phones, ChromeOS netbooks, Nintendo 2DS and 3DS)

One obvious option for this is for Belle Poule to export the pools in FIE XML format, and then import the completed pools in that same format. It would also move towards interoperating Belle Poule with boxes which can transmit pool XML, such as the Favero 05.

The pools could be exported by AJAX to the central ClubKnight server, or a local ClubKnight server could run on BellePoule's local LightTPD web server, and pick up the local XML files.

If another data-export format is preferable, then I'm happy to work with that.

Summary:
.cotcot looks like a standard FIE XML file. Which means the workflow could be :
1) Run Check-in in Belle Poule
2) Run set up Round 1 pools.
3) Save the competition .cotcot
4) Close Belle Poule.
5) ClubKnight reads the .cotcot file.
6) ClubKnight re-exports each pool for Referee and Audience.
7) Referees score the pools in ClubKnight Referee.
8) ClubKnight saves the score data to the .cotcot file.
9) Re-open Belle Poule. and create the next round.
10) re-run steps 2 to 9) for each successive round.

I can manually type results data in to the test competition I have set up in Belle Poule, then re-save the competition, and I'll have the exact format of results data that Belle Poule can read in.
