dang! thanks, you found a bug. Actually a regression. It already worked.
Will have to investigate.

The idea is that the bot in projectdb.olpc.at reads the Talk: page  
about the project proposal on the wiki.l.o.
That way - people will be able to talk and discuss a project  
application on a community level. Let's say in a mediawiki style.
Then these comments get fed back into the projectdb and the persons  
who really have the "vote" bit set can decide about a project proposal.

But the main concern so far was: 1) do we get the data in correctly  
and 2) can we export it to B* ?

These community features can be implemented in hack sessions on  
weekends usually.

experience in general. Why are you the right person to do that project ?

ah, ok, the redundancy bug maybe.

The rest was clear for you?
