 Hi Stephen,
 You are correct: ZooBank has
 been revised. In response to the recent kerfuffle, and to
 save myself some time in cases where people want to know
 when an archive has been added to the ZooBank record (if,

 is available when all criteria have been fulfilled”
 approach), I have changed the ZooBank website to display the
 date & time on which the record was updated to show the
 Online Archive has been added.  So, if you look at the Sys.
 Ent. Record (http://zoobank.org/94AA9CFD-6807-409B-BCC0-863D0AACA0CC),
 you’ll see it listed as:

 This is NOT a permanent
 solution! However, it should address the immediate concern,
 and (perhaps) save me more time in the long run than it took
 me to add this stop-gap feature.  If our pending grant
 proposal to expand ZooBank functionality is awarded, we will
 dramatically improve the overall site, including this
