A slightly related issue: the bogus "contact ACT" and "ACT does not
currently supply" references are still present in the Ada front end
manual; all of them in the 3.1 branch manual, and one in the mainline
manual (PR ada/6399).
"Ada Core Technologies does not currently supply a suitable binding
generator tool." and "For information on GLADE, contact Ada Core
Technologies." are some of the dubious sentences.
The manuals also list ACT as their author; just as companies aren't FSF
maintainers, I understand they aren't authors of FSF manuals either
