The project was set up as a Free Software Project and lives from the efforts and contributions of all interested parties.
It started with some discussions in the Benchmark section of the ISSAC'98 conference in Rostock. The first lines of code were programmed during a visit of O. Bachmann and H. Schönemann at the Univ. Leipzig in March 1999. The main ideas and concepts of release 0.4 (March 2001) got their final shape during 1999 - 2000. The tools were mainly implemented by O. Bachmann and H.-G. Gräbe.
O. Bachmann left the Project Group at the end of 2000 for a new job. Good luck !
