   Whilst the initial data load can (and does) exclude deleted entries, subsequent data must
   be merged with the existing data in order to allow for deletion by another session
-  The client also needs to keep track of when entries are deleted in case it is an entry
from
-  a previous month, as the updated entry won't be returned by the server if the client manually
-  requested an earlier month.
+  In the case of an entry from a previous month, all event subscribers will see the change,
+  and will reload that month.
+  This may add items to the display which were not there before, however this should be very
+  rare.

+  As noted above, deleted entries are returned by server updates. Although the Secretary
receives
+  a lot of mail, most of it does not look like the ICLA or CLA submissions for which the
app is
+  designed, and such mails are never seen by the app. This reduces the amount of data that
needs
+  to be returned.
+  [If necessary, deleted entries could be sent as a separate list of hrefs to reduce the
traffic]
