Firstly, due to my mistake, we have to revert all your other changes
except perhaps the Uploader field if we want to ask for an unblock.  I
should have uploaded your new package to experimental.  This means using
a 2.7.0-1+really2.6-4 version number or something like that.

Please don't push something like that to master yet, however.  I think
that it is unlikely the release team would grant an unblock for a
documentation fix of this nature, as I disagree with Nicholas that the
issue is RC.  So I think you need to ask them first whether they would
accept it before uploading.
