That's right. We did not yet manage to clean up everything. And then we thought
It'd be better not to change documentation while others review the artefacts.

deegree has quite a broad funding base. The biggest part of it comes from
lat/lon's customers (mostly German public administrative bodies), but also from
customers of other companies and institutions who use deegree components for
their business. From what I know, I'd say that the total number of companies and
institutions which pay for deegree-centric services (and thus sponsor the
project) is about 80 to 100 (depending on what you'd consider as "active").
