All of the information about setting up and using AIDA/JAIDA is still appropriate and still works. We have pointed many people to these pages, when they ask us questions by e-mail, and when discussions occur on the forum, and there are many links from google etc to these pages. 

I am perfectly happy for you or someone else to add a comment at the top that they have not been updated recently, and to point to your new installation instructions, but I don't think your new instructions address this issue. Meanwhile I think the pages still contain useful information.

We are currently holding an AIDA workshop at SLAC, and one of the issues we have been working on is improved instructions for setting up AIDA for Geant4. We plan to combine the OpenScientist instructions with the AIDA/JAIDA content from the g4cd area and produce new unified instructions, but it will likely be a couple of months before these are ready. At that point we could perhaps remove the old g4cd area (but it would be good to do it in such a way that people are directed to the new instructions, rather than just sent to a dead link).
