That's not good, I'll ask someone to update it now.

The main person whose work was wasted was mine, and perhaps egg who
copyedited.  We did our best to reuse translations from previous years
so that there was the least amount of work for you guys (only
copyediting work) since we got these texts at the last minute.  I'm
not sure how this page slipped through the cracks when Tim's script
updated spiwiki.

You're right that this is not good, we do our best to avoid situations
like this (finding proofreaders so already translated texts can be
published, getting people to finish so that the work already done is
not a waste, making sure texts are published as soon as possible) but
sometimes they happen anyway.  Thank you for pointing it out to the
list, we can't get it fixed if we don't know the problem's there.

Actually, it *was* your work (and some others') from over a year ago. ;-)

That was the CentralNotice, wasn't it?
