Dear Andreas,

I will open the github repository for MALT within the next few days. There are 
a couple of things that I need to clean up first.

(I was going to wait until our paper that is under review and has been accepted 
for publication, iif it is not good enough for publication then it is not good 
enough for open source…)

Best wishes
