Hi Jeffrey,

Thanks for your work!

One small comment on your announcement: instead of "a compiler that
implements Ada-95 as amended by Amendment 1 (2007)" you could also
say "an Ada 2005 compiler".  ;-)

See for example what John Barnes wrote in section 1.1
"Revision process" of the Rationale for Ada 2005, URL

[start quote] "Ada 2005 is formally defined as Ada 95 as corrected
by the Corrigendum [2] and then amended by the Amendment [16] and
published by ISO in March 2007. It is almost impossible to read
these three documents in parallel and so they been integrated to
form new versions of both the Annotated Ada Reference Manual [15]
and the standard Ada Reference Manual [14].

There was much discussion on whether the language should be called
Ada 2005 or Ada 2006 or indeed Ada 2007. For various reasons the WG9
meeting in York in June 2005 decided that the vernacular name should
be Ada 2005."  [end quote]
