I think the SIGAda community would do well to occasionally check all the
links on their web sites. I have found similar experience when browsing
software reuse stuff I found starting at the Reuse WG. Nothing will say
"dead language" like dead web-pages.
P.S. John, I heard good reports about your Ada railroad stuff at SIGAda'99.
I'm sorry I missed it. I'm pushing hard to make SIGAda'2000. I still
working on getting the "Real-Time Software Engineering (with Ada)" into the
local high schools. Now that I'm at JHU/APL instead of CSC near
NASA/Goddard, I've had to assemble (or is it compile) new resources. :-)
