Dear Mr Gurney 
Freedom of Information Act 2000 – RFI20171161 
Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act (‘the Act’) of 2 August 
2017 seeking the following information: 
Please supply the following: 
1.  A copy of the source code of the legacy Barley page framework (prior to Barlesque 

implemented around 2008) 
2.  A copy of the former page
ml which appears to now return a 404 Not Found error publicly 

3.  A copy of any other documentation held by yourselves relating to the aforementioned 
4.  A copy of all documentation relating to the SSI tools provided by the BBC to the web 
developers (as referenced here: http://intracat/ssi/) 
5.  A copy of the source code for those tools 
Under section 12 (Cost of compliance exceeds appropriate limit) of the Act, we are not 
obliged to comply with a request for information if, in our estimation, compliance would 
exceed “the appropriate limit” - set under regulation 3(3) of Freedom of Information and 
Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004 (‘the Regulations’) as being 
£450 (equivalent to two and a half days’ work, at an hourly rate of £25). 
After careful consideration, we estimate that the cost of complying with your request will 
exceed the “appropriate limit” because of the historical nature of request (points 1, 2 & 3) 
and also the volume of documentation to collate (point 4). 

The BBC has been using and contributing to open source projects for as long the BBC has 
been online. You can find more information at the following site:
