 >   This change affects only sites which operate software which is
 >   not following published standards. Are you affected?
 > On that web page, there is a Domain Owner's test.  You can enter
 > a domain name and click 'test' and shortly receive a report of
 > what was found regarding your domain's DNS servers.

 > was announced somewhere else instead.  I think it needs to be
 > mentioned here if it hasn't already been.
