Yesterday and today I applied these changes to all the articles we have.  That meant applying the latest template as well in many cases. (It was a lot of work. The up-side is that I'm hoping to be able to use scripts to make template updates across the board from now on.)

This means that all of our articles now carry feedback forms.

There is still some work to do for tutorials and test results.  I also need to get the translators to supply text for the scripts, in some cases.

Just thought you'd like to know.
