  9DISCLAIMER
 10----------
 11    For its own internal business purposes AT&T Labs has
 12    assessed various programs obtained from the Internet for
 13    Year-2000 (Y2K) readiness that were not sufficiently certified
 14    for AT&T's needs.  As a service to the computing community
 15    AT&T Labs is freely releasing this information to the
 16    public as a series of "Y2K Application Updates", one update
 17    for what AT&T Labs considers an "application".
 18
 19    For use outside of AT&T, AT&T Labs is not certifying this
 20    information is correct, that any software, including repairs
 21    and tests, will help others in any way, survive the year
 22    2000, nor work with current applications. Nor is AT&T
 23    taking any responsibility for repairing any Y2K problems
 24    that were overlooked nor repairing any bugs in any
 25    "Y2K Application Update". All risk of using this Y2K
 26    Application Update remains with the user who is expected
 27    to test that this update meets their needs.
 28
 29    LICENSE TO USE
 30    AT&T's intent is to ensure these Y2K patches are freely
 31    available to the public but will not maintain a public web site
 32    for their distribution. Any copyright claims only only apply to 
 33    the specific changes made by Y2K to the code. Any original 
 34    copyright holders retain rights to unchanged code. Wherever 
 35    possible patches will be returned to the current owner(s) of the code.
 36
 37    Owners and publishers are free to incorporate appropriate patches,
 38    upgrades, and tests within legal future distributions as long as
 39    they include the credit:

 47    intact, without any change, including copyright and disclaimer
 48    information.  If integrated with the original application items
 49    not needed for an integrated release may be omitted. When
