Instructions for how to apply the guidelines to your program.

Most of the software produced by the MCnet members are licenced under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2. In addition to this, MCnet has decided to publish a set of guidelines relevant for the distribution and usage of event generator software in an academic setting.

These guidelines are distributed as a file named GUIDELINES together with the source code of the programs. We encourage all users of our programs to read through this file and to follow the guidelines within. We also encourage other authors of HEP software to adopt the guidelines for their own programs.
