Same guy Vladimir Makarov and link from previous SF to current GH sources; not
seeing the earlier emphasis on Russian armaments, rather focus is on Dino
language; affiliation RedHat Toronto; GH INSTALL files all date from 20 years
ago; our CHANGES says Win32 support was removed in 2007 at the top, and that
agrees with GH ChangeLog, which continues up to 2019; closed Issue mentions he
changed to autotools for Cygwin and MacOSX between 2015 and 2016; switches email
from users.sf.net to gcc.gnu.org in 2016, and redhat.com briefly 2016 Mar, about
when he switched to GH.

There are few mentions of versions; preference on GH seems to be dates, latest
mainly 2016, regenerated configure, Makefile.in, aclocal.m4 across directories 9
months ago: although our file dates are 2015, that version 0.996 applies to
Ammunition from 2002; version mentions include above Ammunition v0.996,
Onigurama 6.0.0, Dino updates to .5 and .55, http://dino-lang.github.io/download
offers V0.97 with Dino 0.5, GH says V0.98 with Dino 0.55.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
