It is definitely not discontinued and the link for the project is the  
correct one.  I would disagree with the outdated designation since it  
would tend to confuse a user into thinking that the project is  
inactive.  Thanks for bringing it to our attention.  I would  
appreciate anything you could do to remove the designation and  
prevent it from being reapplied.
