Announcing the Coin Bazaar project

I am pleased to announce the addition of the Coin Bazaar project (https://projects.coin-or.org/CoinBazaar) to the COIN-OR repository. This COIN-OR project facilitates community involvement in the COIN-OR repositories by allowing OR researchers to contribute code examples, application examples and code extensions and plugins without directly contributing to a regular COIN-OR project. Thus, this project helps bridge the gap between core package development and package extensions. Specific goals of this project are:

 * To manage extensions to COIN-OR packages that have limited subversion access
 * Allow developers and COIN-OR users to share code and application examples
 * Provide a home for auxilliary software tools that facilitate the use of COIN-OR tools

Coin Bazaar projects are managed within separate directories in the Coin Bazaar subversion repository. Subversion access control is used to manage edits for each project. Although these projects are intended for public distribution, the access control mechanism also supports non-public development (e.g. while preparing a publication). Note that each project is licensed separately, and our intent is not to require that Coin Bazaar projects be licensed consistently (e.g. all under the EPL).

See https://projects.coin-or.org/CoinBazaar/wiki/ProjectProposal for instructions for contributing to Coin Bazaar.
See https://projects.coin-or.org/CoinBazaar/wiki/ProjectsAlphabetical for the list of current projects.

Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback!
