Stephan, I just added you to http://scipy.org/Wiki/EditorsGroup , so you
should now have "revert" among your options in the "get info" page.

The changes by jlc46, I agree, don't look like what we want up there in
the long term. However, they do look like valid issues (s)he had while
trying to follow the instructions on that page. Not being much of a
Windows user myself, I have no idea what the issues involved are, but
perhaps before simply reverting them you could get to the bottom of the
issue?
