9 Policies

9.1 External Software Libraries

ESMF developers are encouraged to use as few external software libraries as possible, to minimize the effort needed to build and run the ESMF software. The external utilities and libraries that the ESMF distribution relies on are listed on the Download tab of the ESMF website.

9.2 Graphics Packages

ESMF uses the MS Visio package to produce its graphics. Both Visio files and *.eps files are checked into the main repository.
