We are pleased to announce the creation of the COIN-OR Foundation, Inc.,
a corporation in the state of Maryland as of March 1, 2004.

This is the first of many steps along the road to making the COIN-OR
Project an independent and self-sustaining resource for open-source OR
software.  In particular, we will soon adopt bylaws that provide for
elected Foundation leaders and will also file for federal tax-exempt
