I will be taking over as maintainer of the its package from Giles Heywood. The code was originally written while he was working at Commerzbank. I have added the header below to the top of the R source file to indicate the changes in the copyrights for the code. The package was originally released under GPL2. I have no experience with copyright issues, and would appreciate it if someone who does would kindly indicate whether the header below is correct and conforms with normal practice.

Thanks in advance,
Whit Armstrong
