I monitor the traffic to the various web pages that I set up as a
result of the leap seconds discussions. One of the more useful
aspects of the server logs is the HTTP referrer string that
often indicates what search query brought the web surfer to my page.

A recent referrer entry was

which, as of this moment, shows that my page on time scales is the
best match for someone searching for the Echelle Atomique Libre.

I do not believe that my web page should be the principal authority on
the products of the BIPM.

I humbly request that members of the precision timekeeping community,
especially any at the BIPM, enhance their web pages. It would be good
for the web surfing public to have a more authoritative (and hopefully
more accurate) website than my own detailing the inner workings of
atomic time.
