Just to clarify-- I'd interpreted "updates" to include corrections.
After all, the world won't come to an end if someone wrote "coprime"
instead of "not coprime" in a sequence def'n, or if 277 is missing
from a list of primes <= 281 in reverse order (?), and it doesn't get
fixed for a few months.

Like probably many people I've accumulated a giant file of pending
corrections and codes, and there's no rush for any of them, although
during the interim period I got back in the habit of submitting fixes
when I saw them.  (There are various ways to, er, maximize the odds of
quickly finding a sequence in need of editing, shall we say.)
