Line Management Issues (John)

Action Items (see list in JIRA)

NeuroBayes License

Pere asked John to summarize the long thread on the NeuroBayes license issue and look at options for how to proceed. John started first with a short history to make sure we all understand the context for the discussion (looking at minutes of previous AF meetings)
The options available:
  1. Sign version of the agreement agreed by the CERN lawyers
  2. Attempt to re-negotiate terms of the agreement that give more favorable guarantees for long term use of the tool (e.g. availability of source)
  3. Terminate use of NeuroBayes at CERN and remove the software
If we decide on 2, only the experiments can decide what conditions are acceptable. If no agreement on one of the above options:
    4. Request every group using NeuroBayes at CERN to sign an agreement and we will remove it from the common AFS area
