WHOA! Not so fast, Mr. Chung. I said nothing of the sort.
What I did say to you, *exactly*, is:

The TXL project, recently a winner of an Excellence in Industrial
Innovation award, is alive, well, and serving the community,
especially in the province of Ontario, who are footing the bill.
As a matter of fact, support for the project is at an all-time high.
Further *distribution*, as I told you in the message above,
is not a priority at the moment because that's not what supporting
organizations are interested in. On the other hand lots of people
use the last free distribution, TXL 7.4, successfully to do lots
of things. And certainly there will be new distributions in future.
I can understand how you misunderstood my note, but let's set it right.
We are not working on free distribution. We *are* working on TXL.
We *do* support TXL users.
