Hi Paola,
Is this a message to me that I have to do something, or to the others that
the 'bureauracy' must first do something? I was expecting to have to
resign/reagree to a license. The special registration for the source
code appeared to be the first step, but it won't even let me in. I have
no trouble downloading the binary code.

Thank you,
