Follow-up Comment #4, bug #26127 (project xboard):

I don't know if there still is any interest in running XBoard with this
variant, but XBoard's general variant support in v4.8 is now such that it can
run variants like this through configuring by user or engine. E.g. for
Mini-Chess 2009, an engine would have to send in response to "protover 2":

feature variants="minichess2009"

and then in response to "variant minichess2009"

setup (PNBRQKpnbrqk) 5x6+0_fairy kqbnr/ppppp/5/5/PPPPP/RNBQK w - - 0 1
piece P& fmWfcF
piece B& BmW

This would then change the board format, setup the initial position, and
defines the deviating pieces P and B. A similar effect could be obtained
without engine by using the options

-boardWidth 5 -boardHeight 6 -loadPositionFile mini09.fen -pieceToCharTable

when mini09.fen was a file containing the FEN of the initial position.

So I don't think patches like these still make sense.
