Hi Stefan,

I hope that you don't mind me CC'ing this to the help-gift list - it's the 
appropriate forum for such questions.

In short, my Perl MRML client is not yet part of the GIFT distribution because 
it is very much a work in progress. It provides a basic client, but it does not 
as implement property sheets etc. It also depends on some (slight) 
modifications to other modules in the GIFT distribution, on which other things 
(benchmarking in particular) depend.

I'm interested to know that Google knows about it, since I had no memory of 
circulating the URL. I now see that Google finds a post to help-gift about it 
from me. Hmmmm.

Getting this script into a state where I was happy to release it, and 
synchronizing it with GIFT, is something I hope to do over summer (which starts 
in one month for me :) ). I could certainly send you a copy of the current 
version, but it is not guaranteed to stay as it is.



PS. Wolfgang, I would be very interested to hear your views on this.
