A new version of the memo, prepared by the Methods & Tools Special Interest Group for informing the CO-LaN Management Board on the requirements of licensing COBIA, is developed. The different distributions of COBIA are especially described so that a decision may be made on the opportunity to use this or that license and may be the same license for all distributions.

Next meeting of the Methods & Tools SIG will take place on July 11, 2018.
