Greetings,

Over the last few months UCL have been attempting to reach
an agreement with the COSINE Project Management Unit to make 
the software developed under the COSINE PARADISE project
freely available via anonymous ftp.  This software comprises
the latest releases of DE, IDM and BLT (the Bulk Load Tools).

One of the aims of these deliberations is to avoid having to
subject users of this software to licence agreements.  Our
motivation in this is driven by a desire to see this technology 
distributed as widely as possible and we fear that any form of 
licensing will inevitably discourage take-up of the software.

As UCL have so far failed to reach agreement in their 
negotiations with the CPMU, the decision to release the software 
will be postponed for a further week until 17 May.
