It has been brought to our attention that the TORQUE license as updated 
for version 2.5.x appears to change the license agreement for TORQUE so 
it is no longer free. This is an oversight on the part of Adaptive 
Computing. It was not our intent nor do we have the authority to change 
the terms of the license. TORQUE is and has always been free. This 
mistake was made as a result of Adaptive Computing's effort to remove 
outdated web links, e-mail addresses and phone numbers in the old 
license and update them with the current support information.

We apologize for this mistake on our part and have corrected the 
problem. Attached is a copy of the updated license.

The updated license has the current information for mailing lists, 
e-mail, websites and phone numbers. On January 1, 2002, the conditions 
for TORQUE redistribution as specified in version 2.4 and earlier 
expired. The two provisions concerning redistribution restrictions have 
been removed to make the document clear and to avoid the oversight we 
made in the future.

Please note that the copyright statement in the license document applies 
only to the license document. This does not apply to the source code.

Adaptive Computing is committed to keeping TORQUE completely open and 
freely distributable.
