However Anne or Lynn could answer us & confirm or deny.
Can you answer us, please ?
He also is not insulting or demeaning to other posters. I'll take that.
What is good Lynn never answers "no, you're wrong, I know it" or fight
for the only proper meaning of USS acronym <g>

1. It's readily update-able.
2. It's readily search-able, in that a reference to the
1978 version of the ABC Frammis get quoted
3. Seeming non-redundant, though I must admit I only
read a few additional peripheral links.
Anyway, it impresses me.......

Lynn Wheeler was one of the very early VM developers. He's been around IBM for 30+ years, starting as a student.
That doesn't answer the questions about the site, but that's WHO he is, anyway -- he's got the chops, he knows what he's on about.
But, his posts are repetitive, difficult to read, and content-free.
I find, as I have said before, no value add.
History is one thing.
Droning posts are another.
When in doubt.
as noted here
much of the website information is maintained in some technology that i
originally worked on about the same time I was doing some system/r stuff
which i've since rewritten from scratch a number of times.
the information is maintained and managed in the technology and then
(static) html files are periodically regenerated and changes copied to
the garlic web pages.
as i've mentioned a number of times before (and also referenced in the
attached comments) most of the html files have an exceptionally high
ratio of hrefs to amount of content (as well as attempting to simulate
bi-directional links) ... which possibly is the reason that many of the
major web crawlers appear to use it for regression case (hits to all the
files from the same crawlers several times per day).
the ietf index
and note on the merged taxonomies and glossaries
for instance ... the privacy taxonomy/glossary was done in support of
working as co-author of the x9.99 financial standard
i.e. notes on various merged taxonomies and glossaries

size of files). There are >6600 terms, >8500 definitions and >35,500

oh, and the e-server magazine article
as an aside to the comment about having been around ... my wife served
her time also ... worked on FS, was in the gburg JES group (one of the
catchers for ASP turning into JES3 ... and worked on a design for
merging JES2/JES3 into a single product) ... and then was con'ed into
going to POK to be in charge of loosely-coupled architecture. while
there she did peer-coupled shared data architecture
except for the IMS hot standby effort ... didn't see a lot of uptake
until parallel sysplex.
recent posting of old email in a.f.c newsgroup mentioning patent she got
on token protocol while she was doing her stint in POK
