DESCRIPTIONPioneers is an implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers of Catan" board game. It uses a client/server model for networked play. This program provides a piece of network infrastructure that helps match pioneers clients to pioneers servers. Casual players of pioneers probably do not need to run this program.

ENVIRONMENTThe default settings of the meta-server can be influenced with the following three environment variables:
- The hostname the meta-server will use when creating new games. This should be a hostname that can be resolved by all clients that will connect.
- The path to pioneers-server-console. If it is not set, the default installation path will be used.
The path to the game definition files.
If it is not set, the default installation path will be used.
- Game definitions
BUGSDo not include port 5557 in the --port-range argument because the meta-server uses this port.
