IIRC, the sig pages were always so out of date because they were web pages that had to be edited like all the other www.p.o web pages.  If they're not wiki pages now, they really should be.  I think SIGs (whether short- or long-lived, doesn't matter) have more value if they're tied to an area on the wiki.
