I've updated the page using the date of the 2nd SGA from Oracle:
2011-10-21.   That was the basis for our 3.4 release.

I like the idea of listing all of the SGA's, but this page is
processed to produce some roll-up reports, and I don't know if the
automation will choke if we get too fancy with the inputs.  So I'm
listing only that one date for now.
