3rd monospaced paragraph (main code sample for page)

The auhor discusses the imports within his own dapp application. The imports are completely outdated and do not work. import ( “net/http” “github.com/julienschmidt/httprouter” “github.com/jbenet/go-ipfs/core” “path” “html/template” “fmt” “log” “github.com/go-kerala/kerala” peer “github.com/jbenet/go-ipfs/p2p/peer” ) The repository github.com/jbenet/go-ipfs no longs exists and is now github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs. The import github.com/jbenet/go-ipfs/p2p/peer is no longer valid. Even if we substitute github.com/jbenet/go-ipfs for github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs

Note from the Author or Editor:
The imports with the word 'ipfs' in them in that list should be removed and replaced with a single import: https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/ and the import “github.com/go-kerala/kerala” should be changed to: https://github.com/llSourcell/kerala
