[armedbear-devel] Soliciting (updates to) testimonials

In the interest of informing potential users about the various uses,
strengths and weaknesses of ABCL, we have a Testimonials page.

However, most of the testimonials don't have a date. That's rather
unfortunate, because it makes it hard to judge how valid they still
are: over the past three years, we had quite a bit of change in our
code base. Most of the changes were driven by CLHS compliance,
correctness or code cleanup (to support future maintenance).

So, there's a good chance some of the older testimonials don't
actually apply to current ABCL versions anymore. Just removing those
older testimonials (leaving a blank page) isn't really an option for
me. OTOH, leaving them up there without a date isn't really indicative
of today's ABCL either.

That's why I'm asking you to submit your (updated) testimonials. If
you're currently using ABCL (or have been using until recently), but
there's no testimonial up on the page from you, please take a quick
look at the top testimonial at
http://common-lisp.net/project/armedbear/testimonials.shtml (the one
by David Kirkman). As you see, it doesn't have to be much, so,
creating a testimonial doesn't have to take a lot of time.

Taking the half hour to create a testimonial is your opportunity to
donate back to the ABCL community!

Thanks for your time and contributions,
