This is as good a place as any.  :-)

The Public Comments page would be better, but it is currently
disabled because I was receiving a lot of spam from it.  I hope
that this problem will be resolved in the near future and I
can re-enable the submission form.

Can you tell us (very briefly) what the differences are?
In particular, are there DWARF constructs which would be interpeted
differently depending on whether the lanugage value is DW_LANG_Ada95
or DW_LANG_Ada2005?  Are there things that a consumer (a debugger)
would do differently with this information.
