The development of GOLF over a period of several years owes a great deal to the skill and dedication of a large number of engineering and technical personnel at each of the participating institutes. The list of these colleagues has been given in the earlier instrument publication (Gabriel et al. 1995). We gratefully acknowledge the continued support (financial and otherwise) of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the French Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), the Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique (CEA) and the Spanish DGICYT under grant 95-0028-C.
