Missing statement number on VeraCrypt warrant canary

Hello, I would like to note that on the VeraCrypt's warrant canary "Statements" list the numbers of the statements are 1, 2, 4, 5 without a statement 3.

I have checked the oldest available version of the canary on wayback machine (from 2015 November 28th) and the list is already numbered like that, so I assume that it is just a typo. If this is the case, this should be corrected as it could also be interpreted as if there was some statement that used to be on the canary and has then been withdrawn, which would be very worrysome.

It was late at night when I wrote the first version of the warrant canary and definitely I made a numbering mistake. Amazing I didn't notice this since then and also nobody reported it before you...

I will correct this typo in the next scheduled canary release (next Sunday).

Thank you for reporting this.
