I do not recall this series at all from six months ago. I reviewed a
series (with no version markers, nor any mention of the previous round)
posted on April 1st, and assumed it was a new series. I raised the same
issues there that I did in v3, though in less detail (because I had not
yet looked into it as thoroughly).

I searched the archive after reading this mail and found the original
series. Yes, it existed. I didn't review it. I guess I had something
more important to do that day.

But is all of this even important? If there are technical issues with
this series, does it matter when we find out about them? They still
deserve to be fixed, no?  Yes, it is nice if things get reviewed
promptly, but the limited bandwidth and attention of reviewers is a fact
of life.
