+osmo-hlr - Osmocom HLR Implementation
+=====================================
+
+This repository contains a C-language implementation of a GSM Home
+Location Register (HLR). It is part of the
+[Osmocom](https://osmocom.org/) Open Source Mobile Communications
+project.
+
+Warning: While the HLR logical functionality is implemented, OsmoHLR
+does not use the ETSI/3GPP TCAP/MAP protocol stack. Instead, a much
+simpler custom protocol (GSUP) is used. This means, OsmoHLR is of
+no use outside the context of an Osmocom core network. You can use
+it with OsmoMSC, OsmoSGSN etc. - but not with third party components.
