Jim reports that he has added Steve Fegan's code for calculating upper limits to v1r17 of the pyLikelihood package. He also fixed some bugs in UpperLimits.py, including the bayesianUL(...) method. See Jim's documentation at Likelihood Usage Notes.
From Masa: "We fixed a bug in the pulsar tools infrastructure, which has been reported by the FSSC programmers in their effort of porting Science Tools into 64-bit machines. It is (supposed to be) fixed in the late version, although Release Manager reports some minor problems, which I think I can fix soon."
