I am current maintainer of eXAT, which is an implementation of multi-agent
system's protocols by FIPA. I have heavily rewritten it to be more
compliant with standard Erlang code. And switched it to use Seresye which
is a continuation of Eresye.

Feel free to try it out, although take a note that both are of pre-beta
quality yet
