I haven't checked since I built to see if they added the notch to the plans. In my case, I received a piece of paper (not a plan revision page) with the fuselage kit that had a drawing with instructions to add the notch.
I don't recall the time frame of when I ordered the fuselage kit, but it had been out awhile before I finished up the empennage kit and the wing kit. The single sheet drawing I received may not have been in the earliest deliveries of the fuselage kit.
That said, this is the only part of the Van's wiring kit that I ended up replacing. I found the connector that goes through this hole to be too vulnerable to working. It is a mini molex that really needs to be held rigidly or the pins can work loose and come out of the connector. I replaced these connections with D subs after that happened on one of the sticks (long before first flight).
In the end, you can just remove the connector and feed the stick wiring through the unmodified hole. Don't try removing the pins and reinserting them in the mini molex. Per Molex specs, these are one shot pins, they are not meant to be removed and reinserted.
