According to the "Where to mirror from" section of "Setting up a

Do you know that, for such trivial change:
- you could avoid the overhead of BTS ?

Hum, overhead when compared to what?
- send a patch against cvs ?

I do know that I could send a patch ...but I also know that wouldn't be very efficient for trivial problems of this kind.
- you could ask a alioth account and just fix the webpage yourself ?

I already have the account chealer-guest on Alioth, but I don't suppose I have write access to the repository.

Reference for 'United States' removed from the page.

Thank you!
