We shouldn't be copy/pasting code from a template. That's the whole point of templates, to avoid that sort of thing. To include the template in your article, use {{Ganymede/Signoffs}}. 14:53, 1 February 2008 (EST)

Well, yes, in theory, but there's two problems.

a) if we used a template the data would be in the form

{{Ganymede/Signoffs|project1|contact1|releng1|status1|url1|project2|contact2|releng2|...} for 23+ projects... which would be very error-prone.

b) As new projects are added/removed, the template needs to change; keeping an accurate record of what was there in the past is easier of the underlying template is not a factor in the presentation of the data in the Signoffs page.

c) copying the template-like code is a no-brainer and takes me seconds, once every 6 weeks. --nickb 16:26, 1 February 2008 (EST)
