In fact, that page didn't even exist 18 months ago :-), it's been
created around May 2010 if I'm not mistaken. The date you're referring
to is probably related to the "frame" in which the data is actually
shown and does not reflect the latest rebuild time of the page.

I agree that it would be nice to have an explicit note of when the data
has been generated though, to avoid that people *think* the data is
outdated. If you want to help out with that, you can propose a patch
against the code in that direction; code is available at:


PS do we have a (pseudo) package against people can report bugs against
   that page?
