And it's clearly insufficient. If it answered the question accurately
do you think we'd be going to all this trouble?

You might be the only person with that experience. Again, we are doing
this driven by a clearly stated request from a number of people. The
current page is a problem.

To be honest, I pushed what I knew was an incomplete patch in need of
work and yep, it's up to us to clean it up. At some point, the
bikeshedding halts forward momentum and I don't want that to happen
(again). We need this status page, and even a bad one that is accurate
is better than what we have now.
