Having slept on this, I recall that I made a post on the Seaside mailing list asking them to change the link. I had no idea whom to ask, but Julian Fitzell took the lead and did so. 
How about we have a deal where I make a page and you post on the Seaside mailing list requesting a change (as I’m not subscribed). Between the two of us we can solve the problem. 

(Actually, it looks like posts do go to the Seaside mailing list. At any rate, perhaps it would be good if you made a post saying “Official Request”? Or [ANN]? Or Something.) 

Cheers,
