The code is available under a GPL license. One of the problems is that
it is constantly changing and I never setup a good system to distribute
it (its in CVS and such, but for example you also need a lot of data
like country lookup tables and such). We do expect that users of the
code contribute data back to DShield.

For me, one of the problems in the past was support of users of the code.

Write me off-list if you are interested. I should finally setup a
mailing list for users of the backend to allow support among the users.

(BTW: If anybody is at SANFIRE in Atlanta this week, look me up...)
