Hi Doug,
I didn't change anything, but for me "virt-tools" on [1] lead to [2]
which is the published page.
I saw you already made the change to the page content that you wanted to make,
but did you (or someone else) already fix this link as well or might this be
depending on who (user/browser/...) looks at it?
