I suppose there's no harm in filing a bug report for this.

I'm still checking for "web services".  Otherwise, we delete them
(or at least comment them out).  My patch got buried in a branch
that I forgot about, but I'll upload it to git-cl soon.

That's the problem of the translation meister -- either to send
the problem to the appropriate person, fix it himself, or to
disable the translation if there's no easy way to fix it.

I've heard from a senior gnu person that this doesn't need to hold
back the stable/2.16 release as long as we're actively trying to
fix it.

You don't need to run "make doc" yourself, but I noted a problem
in the review comments.

I imagine that the ASCII version would just say

Not very exciting, but I suppose that it would be just as
informative as the full docs to a blind reader ?
We fulfill the spirit of that policy (with info), and it's only a
"recommended", not a "required".
