Darn, I forgot that one (I got 3 right, and messed up the 4th one)

This was kind of a "oh shit" thing, done a bit quickly from work while I had
other fires to play with. Basically I got confirmation of the building
change this morning...

While I didn't do the move myself, my understanding is that the whole web
tree was moved, but some web page changes have misteriously disappeared
apprently due to some people making mistakes with RCS (I know you obviously
know how it works since you set it up)

I know, we haven't been always very good with web requests, it came down to
one volunteer left (Heather). Our biggest problem was having lots of people
on the web team list, but most of them didn't have the time to help anymore.
We've tried to address that by updating the membership and bringing a new
web volunteer aboard (Winston Lei)
I am now reading the web list in addition to the mailman and list requests,
and I'm doing my best so that every mail gets answered and acted on.

Thank you Ian, I appreciate it. Just for the record, I wouldn't have been
shy about asking but I did the changes in a hurry and didn't even realize
that the page was so old. For that matter, there may be a newer page
somewhere in the tree and I linked to the wrong one (Heather was without a
net connection today, so I tried to fill in for her)
Anyway, thanks for stepping in again, and fixing this.

Sorry that you have to do this again, and thank you.
