What's this, some kind of advertisement? At18 12:35 17 May 2003 (UTC)

It was linked to from the make page. I'd never heard of it, so I did a little reading, and figured I might as well summarize it so that the next person wouldn't have to do said minor legwork. Does it look like an ad? Is there some kind of policy I'm violating? And aren't ads usually designed to sell things? A-A-P is a free package, like GNU make. There are articles for other packages (vi, AutoCAD, even obscure stuff like J2STask and Xgrid); though some of them are poorly written, I didn't think that constituted a prima facie reason for me not to add a stub for A-A-P.
