The ASI web site had another quiet month in April, with no system
problems reported. The backlog in the Web Formatting and Editing stages of
the ASI web system began to clear out as the Web and Editing teams worked
hard to catch up on the outstanding update requests. The Missing Links
project contributed a significant number of new update requests, as Bobby
Will and Jeremy Kraemer tackled several key sections of the ADB.
During April, a total of 188 updates were published to the ASI web
site, including 38 new documents, 99 modifications to existing documents,
15 deleted documents, 35 moved documents, and 1 renamed document. The
latest updates bring the total number of documents on the ASI web site to
2108 HTML documents and 792 GIF and JPEG images. Most of the work in
editing and approving the updates was done by Luanne Jorewicz, Bobby Will,
Greg Bennett, John Wertz, Leah Simpson, Candace Dicks, Jeremy Kraemer, and
Ian Strock. Some of the new documents and other updates were submitted by
Tim Cadell, Paul Morris, and Richard Marsden.
