As part of the transition of the Coyotos tree from Johns Hopkins to The
EROS Group, it was decided to split off the BitC effort into a project
that stands independent of Coyotos. The BitC project will shortly
migrate to its own website.
At the same time, all contributors and authors (including the
University) agreed that the BitC bootstrap compiler is a reference
implementation. To maximize uptake, we agreed that the BitC
implementation should be released under the BSD copyright, and The EROS
Group committed to make the parts that we had written available under
the BSD terms to support this.
The copyright change for the source code is now committed in the Coyotos
tree, and the update has propagated to the web site.
