Given that hardware vendors are strictly a subset of inactive developers, and all the individual developers listed have been active in the past few years, we could do both: inactive developers with subheadings hardware vendors and other developers, and active developers with subheadings vendors, organizations (although I remain skeptical that the GNU APL community can really be considered an organization that develops APL), and independent developers. --[[User:Marshall|Marshall]] ([[User talk:Marshall|talk]]) 20:42, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

::[[User:RLevine|RLevine]] ([[User talk:RLevine|talk]]) 05:26, 23 November 2020 (UTC) Based on your comments (and thanks) I'm glad I reached out for feedback. I think I better understand the intent of this page. I found a page closer to what I was looking for (Running APL). When I initially searched, I used "APL vendors" and was re-directed here which led to some "wheel-spinning" on my part looking for a list of APL's I can use now. Which seems to be what Running APL intends. So now I am suggesting just to add a related link on "Language Developer" page pointing to the page "Running APL". Or do we put at the top "If you're looking for current APLs click here ...". Whatever is the usual practice on this wiki.
::I would suggest re-organizing (without changing) to separate APL from derivative languages in some way.
::I agree with your observation on GNU Community. Not sure the intention of including it under Organizations. I think it's a user group like any other user group (As  the GNU APL website state: "This web page contains links to contributions from users of GNU APL, aka. "the GNU APL community"). I suggest removing "GNU APL Community" from Organizations and replacing with the GNU APL developer Jürgen Sauermann in the list of language developers. This is based on what's in the current GNU APL website. This also seems to be in line with the purpose of the page.
