   In the source archive, one can read:
     This software probably belongs to the Regents of the University of
     California, so you can copy it, but you can't use it to make any money=
. =

   But on http://www.nsf-middleware.org/NMIR2/license_nws.asp one can read
     that NWS is released under a BSD like licence... =

   I guess that upstream author forgot to change the file in the tarball...
  Description      : Network Weather Service, monitoring tool for grid plat=

The Network Weather Service is a distributed system that periodically
monitors and dynamically forecasts the performance various network and
computational resources can deliver over a given time interval. The service
operates a distributed set of performance sensors (network monitors, CPU
monitors, etc.) from which it gathers readings of the instantaneous
conditions. It then uses numerical models to generate forecasts of what the
conditions will be for a given time frame. We think of this functionality as
being analogous to weather forecasting, and as such, the system inherits its
name. =

I already packaged the version 2.0.5 of this program (available from
www.ens-lyon.fr/~mquinson/deb.html), and I'm currently working on porting my
patches (for usability, bug fixes and new functionnality) to this new
version. =

Thanks, Mt.
