+openbsc.git
+===========
+
+This is a HISTORICAL,OBSOLETE repository containing the code-base
+of what used to be known as bs11_hack, later OpenBSC and also OsmoNITB.
+
+Those projects have been superseded by OsmoBSC, OsmoMSC and OsmoHLR
+(collectively known as Osmocom CNI).
+
+The code in this repository is completely unmaintained, unsupported and
+it is strongly discouraged to use it. On the other hand, the modern
+Osmocom CNI implementations are fully maintained and continuously
+tested.
+
+Do not bother the developers with questions about code from this
+repository.
