   Whatever the original idea behind Morris dancing was, it long ago indeed
   became associated with Spring ("As fit as [...] a morris for May Day" –
   Shakespeare), and nowadays many Morris teams begin their dancing season

+The APF In Other Formats
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 Currently, the APF is available in three main formats: as a text file, as a
 pages.
 
 The recommended point of entry for obtaining all these formats remains the

+Third-party Annotations
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 Over the years, a number of non-APF collections of Discworld annotations
 have appeared (mostly on the Web), partially in reaction to the APF going
 without updates for so long.
 
-"`The L-Space Wiki`_" <http://wiki.lspace.org/wiki/Annotations> collects
-annotations in a collaborative Wiki environment. Annotations submitted to
-this Wiki may eventually end up incorporated in a future version of the
-APF.

-"`Bugarup University`_"

-specifically collects 'Australian' annotations for "`The Last Continent`_".

-"`Google Groups`_" <http://groups.google.com/> is not a dedicated web site, but
-a Usenet search engine that offers a very good way to seek out annotation
-discussions that have appeared on the Pratchett newsgroups.

 Bibliography

 the APF, but for v9.0 there are a few really heavily-used resources I want
 to mention:
 
-1. "`The Complete Works of William Shakespeare`_",
-<http://www-tech.mit.edu/Shakespeare/>, operated by The Tech at MIT.
-
-The oldest on-line Shakespeare website in existence. All Shakespeare quotes
-in the APF are taken from (and in the Web version linked to) this site.
-
-2. "`Bible Gateway`_", <http://www.biblegateway.com/>, operated by Gospel
-Communications International.
-
-Another web site that goes back to 1993. It is an unsurpassed resource for
-scriptural research, and all Bible quotes in the APF are taken from (and in
-the Web version linked to) the King James Version available on this site.
-
-3. "`The Internet Movie Database`_", <http://www.imdb.com/>, operated by
-Internet Movie Database, Inc.
-
-Another dinosaur resource that has been around since the early nineties.
-Much of the movie-related data in the APF is taken from (and in the Web
-version linked to) the IMDB.
-
-4. "`Wikipedia – The Free Encyclopedia`_", <http://www.wikipedia.org/>,
-operated by Wikimedia Foundation, Inc.
-
-A relative newcomer among the APF editing resources, but a very important
-one. The Wikipedia articles have been invaluable in providing and checking
-the facts and definitions that make up so much of the APF.
-
-I have tried to keep my usage of the Wikipedia material at the level of
-'fair use'. Although in many cases I would have liked to use much more
-direct cutting-and-pasting of Wikipedia information, I cannot do this yet
-because I am not sure if this is allowed, copyright-wise. Wikipedia
-information is available under a so-called Free Documentation License,
-which allows unlimited use and modification but only under one condition:
-that the APF would in turn be released under a similar license, and I am
-not sure I can do that yet – see also the 'Copyright Discussion' section.

 Copying The APF
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 basically formalise the fact that everybody is allowed to copy and modify
 the APF as they see fit. Such a license would also be a prerequisite for
 being allowed to make more intensive use of other free resources such as
-the "Wikipedia_" free encyclopedia.

 However, with the APF containing so much quoted and contributed material it
 is not clear to me if I actually have the right to release the APF under an
