This was also the consensus reached among SEBHC members at the time the
archive was established and is reiterated in the ftp login screen,
though I guess we should make sure it appears for html users as well.
The only material for which we have definitely failed to get permission
is software from Hoyle and Hoyle. I am still in discussion with Jim
Giloogly about his Software Toolworks material and until I get approval
from him, none of his software should be uploaded.
