Hi,

Your choice of acronym is unfortunate for those of us with a longer history in 
the EPICS community.  To avoid confusion with the original Portable CAS (which 
was often referred to as pcas) I'm going to refer to this project with the 
name PyCAS on the EPICS website.  I don't know whether you can/would want to 
change the project's name at Google Code though, that's up to you.

Thanks, this looks very interesting.

According to the Google Code project home page your code is licensed under the 
GPLv3, although the files themselves make no mention of the license or who 
owns the copyright.  I would have expected PSI to require you to include a 
Copyright notice in at least one file — the standard practice for Free/Libre 
and Open Source Software is to put a notice of the copyright owner and date in 
each file, and include the text of the license in a separate file, often 
called COPYING.  There are instructions on how to do this at the end of the 
GPL license files.
