Tucana, or the toucan (Tuc) is a small austral constellation located in the parallel of 60ยบ of South, observable latitude solely in the South hemisphere during great part of the year and not in the north where I write these lines to you.
One is far from the equator of our Milky Route but it has in concrete in her to the small cloud of Magallanes to the south of the same one, therefore, it is the object more spectacular than we can observe in her.
Tucana limits the north with the constellations of Phoenix and Grux, to the east with Indus, the south with Octans and Hidrus and to the west with this one last one.

Consequently, the structural parameters of Tucana have been found, from which it has been confirmed that Tucana participates to the general metallicity-surface brightness-absolute magnitude relations defined by the Galaxy and M31 dwarf spheroidal and dwarf elliptical companions.
It has thus been shown that Tucana is a clear exception to the scenario suggested by van den Bergh (1994), suggesting that young or intermediate-age populations are preferentially found in dSph's far from the Milky Way.
In the case of Tucana, it was speculated that galactic winds expelled the interstellar medium at early epochs and halted star formation, a process apparently not dependent on environment.

These releases had occurred before the company folded, so in that sense, anyway, they were the legal actions of intellectual property holders.
But, according to what seems to be settled legal opinion, the Kowari Metastore branch was still licensed under the MPL, which meant that development could continue on that branch, and that releases could be made as per the terms of the MPL, which is an open source license.
David Wood (with whom I work at UMD’s MindLab, for whatever that’s worth) was a principal in Tucana and has been working on Kowari development since NG acquired the assets of the company he helped found and run.
