Re: Fwd: Inquiry regarding benchmark simulations

Barry will have to answer if there's any reason to restrict...

I would say that one thing about their request that is odd is
that they are asking to re-license it. I would suggest that
we would make it available under the UIUC open source license,
and that they could make other variations available with the
same license. That's my only suggestion here.

Best,
  John
