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.
