I'm not. I didn't bump the version number just because I took over
maintainership. A few of us debated listing me for all stations vs not, and
my argument was that the vendor field should indicate who to contact for
bug reports and device support, not who wrote the software at the time.

The last time we checked (2013) Aprx out-numbered APRXmax 1507 to 5.

For future reference, the aprs-deviceid README documents the best way to
get it in Hessu's queue to add enteries: https://github.com/h
