NOTE: Due to a CMS mistake the canary that was published
April 01 got reverted with the previous version on the 7th,
so I am posting this out of sequence to say everything is good,
nothing nefarious except us making a mistake.
This kind of silet mistake is the biggest management issue
with Canaries and it finally got us.
