acknowledges the help given to the GAP project in
different ways by many colleagues. All of these are refered to as the
'GAP Group'. To contact the

The GAP Group is most interested in close contact to the users of GAP. On one hand we hope for feedback from users, on the other hand we are offering to give support to users as well as we can. However with both, reacting to feedback and giving support, users are kindly asked to understand that all this is done by colleagues who provide such service in addition to the work for their regular job.
In March 2005 the GAP Council and the GAP developers have agreed that status and responsibilities of "GAP Headquarters" should be passed to an equal collaboration of a number of "GAP Centers".
We hope for feedback in particular in the following instances.
We offer to react as well as we can to questions, requests for help with problems, or complaints that you may have. However, for the sake of the whole user community of GAP, we ask you to separate these into two different categories.
The functionality of GAP has been widely enlarged by pieces of code and data collections that have been developed by users of GAP and have been provided to be used with the main GAP library. We distribute these in the form of Packages, Data Libraries, and Deposited Contributions. We welcome obtaining any further such contributions as well as references to GAP implementations in the course of your research projects that you want to keep with you but that you will allow to be listed on the page Undeposited Implementations.
As explained on the respective page we have established a procedure for formally 'accepting' some packages which we hope will give them a status comparable to a published paper. On a separate page we inform about the process of submitting contributions.
We acknowledge with gratitude the financial support of the development of GAP by various Funding Bodies.
Finally, To Outside World gives a number of links that we hope to be occasionally useful to have at hand for users of GAP, although they have nothing directly to do with the system. Most of the links go to web sites with lots of information that we believe to be kept reasonably up to date for their respective purpose.
