Also, for this project to go forward, we need a release that is absolved from points 1 and 2, and we need to make sure that no software is being distributed in this release that would violate the MPL.
Can we re-brand a 0.9.2 release with the updated URLs and an updated footer to explain that Cognizo no longer distributes nor supports CATS and that we just include their name because of licensing purposes? Plus throwing a nofollow on the outbound url?

OK, so that would suggest that, where in 0.9.1 the footers don't currently include the copyright statement, you don't have to add it. I don't mind either way, personally, but clarity is important
CATS Project site IS http://www.catsone.com
. It is clearly stated in the CPL. Any change that does not conform to the CPL is a violation of our license.
Asim, the point is that the CPL refers to the "CATS Project site, currently http://www.catsone.com
". I think what many were wondering (and again I don't mind either way, personally) was whether this could be changed to point to http://www.catsone.co.uk
(or whatever) simply because right now catsone.com is not a "project site" in the usual meaning of the term for open source projects. Catsone.com contains nothing at all about the open source project, which would be a strange fit with it being referred to as the "project website" in the CPL. That decision is entirely yours to make, however, and nobody is suggesting otherwise, just putting the issue out there.
For everybody else, the CPL only applies to CPL-covered code. If, for instance, one were to code an entirely new (from scratch) login module, that could present the user with a splash screen pointing them towards a more useful "project site" from their point of view, without changing any of the CPL-covered code.
