-If you're using cvlm as your estimator (note that this is no longer the
-default), you'll also need the Boost C++ and the Petsc/Tao C++ libraries
-in order to retrain the reranker.  If you're using cvlm-owlqn as your
-estimator, you can ignore these steps.  Install instructions for Petsc/Tao
-are given later in this document.  The environment variables PETSC_DIR and
-TAO_DIR should all point to the installation directories of this software.
-I define these variables in my .login file as follows on my machine.
+On estimators: There are multiple estimators one can use when retraining
+the reranker.  cvlm and cvlm-owlqn are the main ones of interest.
+cvlm-owlqn is significantly faster than cvlm but unfortunately has been
+removed from this distribution due to licensing conflicts (but see the
+license section at the bottom of this file).
