Because there seems to be some issue about the license, I'm probably
safer (we're all probably safer) if you don't have access to the code
itself yet. I'll go ahead and create the javadocs for the latest version
and post them online. I'll send a message to this list as soon as I'm
done, probably in a day or so. If you haven't heard from me by Saturday,
send me a reminder. If there seems to be some consensus on licensing,
I'll go ahead and make the code available (i.e., it's probably not a
good idea to distribute something with an Apache package name and an
Apache license without first getting approval from ASF).

Thanks for your interest,

   The Office of Special Plans (OSP) was set up by the defence secretary,
   Donald Rumsfeld, to second-guess CIA information and operated under
   the patronage of hardline conservatives in the top rungs of the admini-
   stration, the Pentagon and at the White House, including Vice-President
   Dick Cheney. The ideologically driven network functioned like a shadow
   government, much of it off the official payroll and beyond congressional
   oversight. [...It] also forged close ties to a parallel, ad hoc intelli-
   gence operation inside Ariel Sharon's office in Israel specifically to
   bypass Mossad and provide the Bush administration with more alarmist
   reports on Saddam's Iraq than Mossad was prepared to authorise.,2763,999737,00.html
