Oops. I forgot to post it sooner.
To do it quicker (and have a little sleep before my plane to Moscow), I let
the french text of solutions. I hope you can read it.
Thanks again to composers who provided SPGs for the competition.
I got no classical retro and composed quickly 3 of them; too quickly as
unfortunately one of them is cooked as some solvers in Messigny and also Henrik
Juel found.

Results :
thanks to Gligor and Nicolas, no solver quit the competition totally hating
there was only 1 solver for 6 and 7, but that doesn't mean they were the most
difficult as some solvers didn't have chance to try them (some keeped sticked
to problems' order and spend all their solving time on Christoph's 3).
Congratulations to Pascal for his new title. It is a close win, as Gerd and
Thierry are really near. Christain completes the dominating quatuor, leaving
others far behind...
