Here (in an xterm):

didier[~]$ whois hdt-project.org
Registry Domain ID: D156056413-LROR
Registrar WHOIS Server:
Registrar URL: http://www.gandi.net
Updated Date: 2017-05-05T01:37:39Z
Creation Date: 2009-05-04T20:20:51Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2018-05-04T20:20:51Z
Registrar Registration Expiration Date:
Registrar: Gandi SAS
Registrar IANA ID: 81
Registrar Abuse Contact Email:
Registrar Abuse Contact Phone:
Domain Status: clientHold https://icann.org/epp#clientHold
Domain Status: clientTransferProhibited https://icann.org/epp#clientTransferProhibited
Domain Status: autoRenewPeriod https://icann.org/epp#autoRenewPeriod

So it shows a Registry Expiry Date next year, but see also
the three Domain Status, explained in this page:

So you could contact Gandi:
and ask them what the issue is.

But most probably this will be solved with a yearly renewal, that you
should have done already.
Note: in France as in most countries the usual date format is DD MM YYYY,
so 08/04/2016 is understood 08 April 2016, so you should have made the
yearly renewal nearly one month ago if that's what you meant.
Do it ASAP then.

Best regards

PS I have been a Gandi customer during some years with no issue that
I remember.
