... which happens to contain various incorrect statements about the 
development of POV-Ray.  In particular the lengthy paragraph about the 
"owner" and "developer" of POV-Ray is all wrong.  Persistence of Vision 
Raytracer Pty. Ltd. only holds the copyright in order to protect individual 
developers (against patent lawsuits, illegal use of POV-Ray, etc), it does 
not develop POV-Ray.  This is a same setup similar to what most open source 
projects are forced to use these days.  The paragraph also claims the 
official version is not developed by volunteers, which is plain wrong, too.
