Most of them simply didn't have the revision dates in their headers 
updated, which should mean they had no changes.  It's not necessarily a 
real failure, but it's reported as one on the assumption that it may be 
a mistake.  Once a file has been imported successfully, its entry is 
cleaned up.

The rest are "string not terminated" cases.  These are usually from 
carriage returns inside quotes: whether we should read those as newlines 
depends on the platforms of the people who edited the file, but 
apparently there's one platform out there that uses both line feed *and* 
carriage return, confusing everybody.  I guess on a regular platform 
it's easy to insert a closing quote between the two by accident.

Here they are, with the location of the first error:
