The reason I asked these questions was not to encourage you to do
extra work, but instead to obtain clarification as to why I
couldn't find the "defaced" page of 1/1/04 in the RCS popup menu
when I looked for it earlier today (there wasn't anything newer
than 11/24 visible).

But just now when I checked, I saw entries for 1/1 (the defacing)
and 1/3 (the refacing), followed by my edits of today! Seems odd
that the menu changed during the course of this day. Perhaps my
browser was playing tricks on me...

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to fix the home page, and to
write your response.
