For all intents and purposes, Sisal is no longer an "active" area of
research. Funding at LLNL for this effort concluded about 6 years
ago. The web pages are no longer up here. As I had indicated to
Alan Karp, the only web pages I know of are those maintained by David
Raymond at New Mexico Tech:
It is really just an archive of the old Sisal stuff, not really any
fancy web pages.
If you have questions about Sisal, I am always interested in trying
to help out, so just send me some messages.
