Maneage: clarified the definition of Maneage being a programHEADmaster
Until now, we hadn't clearly defined what we mean by Maneage being a program. So viewers of the page could get confused. With this commit, that old sentence was replaced by a new one written by Richard Stallman in a private email (hence why he is the commit author and Mohammad, who pasted it inside of 'index.html', is the committer).

The name "Maneage" is a <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portmanteau">portmanteau</a>; created by merging the first three characters of "<i>man</i>age" with the last four characters of "lin<i>eage</i>".</p>

- An important principle of Maneage is that it is a "program" (you download a copy of it and install it on your own machine and use your own copy).

+ This means that you download a copy of Maneage and install a copy on your own machine.

+ Therefore, you have full control over what it does.
