 erik: it's an editable web page, being a wiki, so you can do that
yourself.  to stop spam i've had to set a password for creating
accounts, and it's "passwordreqd".

so whilst i'm delighted that you've highlighted some errors, the
wording you're using "please correct the page" is not appropriate to
use for a libre community project.   the words you _meant_ to use are,
"how can this page be changed" or "would someone like to *consider*
changing the page" or "can i invite you to *consider* changing the

basically anything which gives the expactation that someone *will* act
on your behalf to action your wishes, when you're part of the
community by being here and i've provided you with the right - and the
trust - to action your wishes without immediate oversight or direct
permission being required.

so. do you want to try editing the page yourself, or does anyone else
want to action erik's valuable contribution?
