The Wikipedia page about Elvis Presley says it was last updated a week ago,
so if that's good enough to claim "not dead", then, well, you're not alone.

All the evidence points to Eddie being dead:

  - The most recent release of eddie on sourceforge is from 15 years ago
  - The bug tracker has two bugs in total. Neither of which are recent.
  - The patch tracker has two trivial patches in total. From 2007.
  - Nothing's been committed to CVS for more than a decade.
  - One of the most recent CVS commit logs talks about Erlang R9B-1.
