Nothing is urgent right now, so it is an ideal time to do this.  When
we are ready for the next release there will be many urgent items to
attend to, making it easy to miss this.

In any case, I just made the changes.  It took 4 minutes to edit,
check-in, verify on staging and publish the HTML files.  I think it
took longer to write this note.
