  (6) yes, but TriAda is not making effective use of websites to
      advertise themselves
Additional information on number 6. On the dozens of web sites which give out
Ada code or Ada information, where are the Ada activities such as Tri-Ada?
In addition, other activities that are on-going, but are not advertized
on the Net: (a) committees to handle language issues and revisions,
(b) committees to revise the infamous style manuals, (c) the other committees
that have authority over the Ada language especially Ada 2000X, etc. On
comp.lang.ada, those who do not know the structure of these commmittees
in authority that make the decisions for the Ada language are lambasted.
Revealing the power structure on the Net will make more energy available
from those who wish to participate.

The advertisements that appeared most were requests to help set up and take
down the SigAda booths (I helped take down the booth at STC 97 in April).

The most common websites for engineers who use Ada are those that download
gnat, patches to Alsys, and code from the PAL. These URLs could point to
Ada committees, working groups, and activities like Tri-Ada.
