Three months later and the wrong address is still there!

I happened to notice this ticket on #tor-bots (due to Alison's recent comment). Is this a website content issue or a change that needs to be made to BridgeDB? Since the ticket has no owner, no one is probably working on it ;)

Here's a patch:

diff --git a/bridgedb/ b/bridgedb/
index 1c40695..49bb933 100644
--- a/bridgedb/
+++ b/bridgedb/
@@ -271,7 +271,7 @@ EMAIL_SPRINTF = {
     # For the "%s Tor Browser download page %s" part of ``HOWTO_TBB[1]``
     "HOWTO_TBB1": ("", "[0]"),
     # For the "you should email %s" in ``HELP[0]``
-    "HELP0": (""),
+    "HELP0": (""),
 """``EMAIL_SPRINTF`` is a dictionary that maps translated strings which
 contain format specifiers (i.e. ``%s``) to what those format specifiers should

but I think it still remains for somebody (maybe sysrqb?) to apply the patch to the deployed bridgedb.

Okay, fixed - after a little trial and some errors.
