If that does not work, MP to me and I will create an account for you.

IRC channel: Does anyone frequent it?  I logged on today (Sunday) and

We don't have a lot of time and there are too few of us. That and stupid office policies... :-/

History: The intro page mentions "the true Eiffel language" a couple of
times.  Is there some document that details what that is, at least at a
high level?  Does it mean _Eiffel: The Language_ (1992), everything in
"standard Eiffel" (as apparently maintained by Bertrand Meyer in a
"ETL3" page--according to Wikipedia), but prior to ECMA-367, or
something in between?  I'm not that interested in nitty-gritty details
but rather the major points of contention.

The "true" language is what Bertrand Meyer proposed at the beginning of Eiffel: a language that could be learned in a few days. I am not sure that is true anymore, even for Liberty Eiffel.

The main differences between ECMA / ISE and Liberty Eiffel are:
