VOEvent Sourceforge Project

As part of my work following up from the VOEvent workshop, which was held in Pasadena earlier in the month, I've established a Sourceforge project for VOEvent related software.

Currently the project hosts some pre-alpha release Perl modules which I threw together in the days following the workshop. These modules allow you to parse incoming GCN binary packets and convert them to pseudo-VOEvent messages based on the examples we generated during the meeting.

The code has also been placed onto the Sourceforge's CVS server under a module name of "perl_modules". Patches and additional development effort from the community would be welcome...
