Trip Log 2017-04-04 h22 -- DevOps With GNU ELPA

Towards the end of February, moved by a “devops” spirit, I made two changes to "", one of the admin scripts used in GNU ELPA maintenance.  The first change ([admin] Prefer GNU wget to curl.) reduces the script's dependency fan-in, by consolidating on one tool of two that perform the same function.  (I chose "wget" since it is part of the GNU Project.)  The second change ([admin int] Simplify perl script.) makes the script more efficient (reduced memory and processing requirements) by replacing the accumulate then sort (multipass) algorithm with a one-pass algorithm.  That's it.
