Thanks for the info Alex.

Chris,

Since the code was pulled from a mailing list does that mean we can use it?


Feels like we should give Yannick credit for his code, and I am thinking
about adding a Credit line to the NOTICE.txt mentioning the original
implementation of the TaylorDiagram class came from Yannick Copin.

Thoughts?
