Nor had PhotArk updated its entry to "retired" until I did that
yesterday to get rid of one of the warnings.

I'm not actually all that worried. The worst that can happen in the case
of the voter script is that some votes don't get recorded, or are
recorded later than expected. The script does emit warnings if it sees
strangeness; I /could/ teach it to send the warnings to the podling's
dev list (if known), cc: general@. But I'd rather not open the spam
floodgates unless people really want me to.
