Please add role="contentinfo" to the meta information with last modified / by whom:
Page last modified 15:46, 11 Nov 2011 by Aaronlev
This will make it easier for users to access the date of the page.

I'm not sure that the other contentinfo landmark currently used for username/logout is necessary, if it's redundant with what's in the page header.

Just an attribute addition -- easy!

Hi, I was working on a patch for this bug and here is what i had done

But it is a little confusing that since role="contentinfo" is for region that contains info about the parent element, so should i add it to <section class="page-meta"> (line 269)

I think that's just right.
