Happy with that.

Still, the official maintainer is Pavan. gnuprologjava is not the only project with a (currently) inactive maintainer. What about listing the 3 of you?

That is a bit more correct but I think it is probably a bit misleading to say "is maintained" and actually Matt Lilley has done the most recent work (2017). I don't think Pavan has been involved since 2013.

Hello Daniel,

Thanks for your prompt reply. The changes are online.
It just occurred to me that you shouldn't be listed as a GSoC
student anymore. What about this:

Prolog for Java is currently maintained by Pavan Kumar Gorakavi
and Daniel Thomas. Please use the mailing list for contact.

Thank you Thérèse. Yes please commit this. Been a long time since I did anything on this project.

GNU Webmasters are planning to migrate all templated pages (those
using SSIs) to HTML5 in order to improve accessibility. But before
doing this, deprecated tags such as <tt>, <acronym> and <big> need
to be removed.

The home page of ACM contains <tt> in the Mailing lists section.
I got rid of it, and took this opportunity to do some minor edits:

  • Download: reword to avoid long URLs in the text (very bothersome

  for screen reader users).

  • Documentation: list the manual first; use <ul>; replace <em> with

  <kbd> (command) or <code> (directory).

  • Mailing lists: reword more concisely; replace <tt> with quotes.
  • Get involved: remove the commented-out part, Test releases

  (obsolete), and subheadings.

  • http > https.
  • Wrap long lines.
  • Boilerplate update.

A diff is attached. If you agree with the changes but don't have time
to commit them right now, I will gladly do it.

Best regards,
