Hi All,

I was following up on Carole's presentation regarding the myGRID use  
of LSIDs [1].  I wanted to confirm whether they were using the IBM  
code base [2][3].  This post from 2 years back by Chris Roe [4] does  
confirm that and gives a little more detail from earlier in the  
myGRID chronology which provides additional info on what motivated  
them to use LSIDs.

Cheers,
Bill
