Remove the paragraph about writing to the Free Software Foundation's mailing address. The FSF has changed addresses in the past, and may do so again. In 2021 this is not useful, let's rather have a bit less boilerplate at the start of source files. Change-Id: I4a49dbeeec89b22624c968152118aecf8886dac6

osmo-pcu - Osmocom Packet Control Unit
This repository contains a C/C++-language implementation of a GPRS Packet Control Unit, as specified by ETSI/3GPP. It is part of the Osmocom Open Source Mobile Communications project.
The Packet Control Unit is terminating the Layer 2 (RLC/MAC) of the GPRS radio interface and adapting it to the Gb Interface (BSSGP+NS Protocol) towards the SGSN.
The PCU interfaces with the physical layer of the radio interface. OsmoPCU is typically used co-located with the BTS, specifically OsmoBTS. For legacy BTSs that run proprietary sotware without an interface to OsmoPCU, you may also co-locate it with the BSC, specifically OsmoBSC
The official homepage of the project is https://osmocom.org/projects/osmopcu/wiki/OsmoPCU
You can clone from the official osmo-pcu.git repository using
git clone git://git.osmocom.org/osmo-pcu.git
There is a cgit interface at http://git.osmocom.org/osmo-pcu/
Please note that a lot of the PCU configuration actually happens inside the BSC, which passes this configuration via A-bis OML to the BTS, which then in turn passes it via the PCU socket into OsmoPCU.
