+This is a fork, maintained by me, fish2000; it is based on [the original research work of Thomas Deselaers](http://thomas.deselaers.de/fire/), which he undertook as part of his [thesis work](http://thomas.deselaers.de/publications/papers/deselaers_diploma03.pdf) [PDF] at [a university
+whose name I can't even dream of pronouncing without butchering it somehow](http://www.rwth-aachen.de). My copy of the codebase came from [the FIRE-CBIR Google Code repository](http://code.google.com/p/fire-cbir/).
+
+Please see [Dr. Deselaers' FIRE-CBIR site](http://thomas.deselaers.de/fire/) for a full list of the many
+talented contributors to this fine codebase. It is their wish that users of FIRE-CBIR will cite their work with this formal citation:
