France to publish its own X-Files online

The French space agency is planning to publish all its Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) reports on the web. From Cnet:
Jacques Arnould, an official at the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), said the French database of about 1,600 incidents would go live in late January or mid-February.

He said CNES had been collecting statements and documents for almost 30 years to archive and study them.

"Often, (reports of unidentified flying objects) are made to the Gendarmerie, which provides an official witness statement...and some come from airline pilots," he said by telephone.
It will be interesting to hear any official word from the French space agency regarding these UFO reports that they have collected. Are they really alien crafts or are they hoaxes? Over the years, there have been many governments such as the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Sweden, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, and the Soviet Union investigating UFO reports but none has publicly suggested that these UFOs are of extraterrestrial origins.
