Licensing memo on COBIA
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (represented by Bill BARRETT), AmsterCHEM (represented by Jasper van BATEN), Bryan Research & Engineering (represented by Michael HLAVINKA), Michel PONS (contractor to CO-LaN as Chief Technology Officer)
Development of version 10 of the memo dedicated to the licensing scheme for COBIA. Starting point is version 9 developed by Bill BARRETT with some reorganization of the document and distributed to M&T SIG on July 12. The reorganization is first discussed with respect to the target. Foreword is further simplified and limited to its purpose. The four different distributions envisioned in version 9 are reduced to three: examples and training materials being dismissed from the distribution list. Regarding the End User Redistributable, a significant point is made that the distribution of it by CO-LaN should be code signed in order to let it recognized as coming from CO-LaN and a reference version.
Next conference call is scheduled for August 8, 2018.
