      Use of LSST Software

      All LSST code is free software, licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public Licence, Version 3. You have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software as you see fit, with no strings attached (aside from the GPL requirements when redistributing the code or derivatives). Using, modifying or redistributing the LSST Stack does not make you subject to the LSST Project Publication Policy. However, if you use the software in a published work, we request that you cite Ivezić et al. and Axelrod et al. In addition, it is appropriate to include an acknowledgement of the form:

      This paper makes use of software developed for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope. We thank the LSST Project for making their code available as free software at http://dm.lsst.org.

      Since the LSST Project is not funded to provide support for the LSST Stack outside of LSST, any support provided by project members will come out of their own free or science time. A fair way to acknowledge their help and good will may be to offer co-authorship on technical papers describing the derived software (e.g. pipelines).

      Current recommendation

      Tim Jenness: I’d say Juric et al 2015 and Axelrod et al 2010 will cover bases. That acknowledgement text seems fine as well
