FIDE rated or not?

Early this year, a small controversy erupted in Victorian chess circles. Was the Victorian Junior Masters able to be FIDE rated or not? As it turns out, it wasn't eligible for FIDE ratings. It seems that the tournament wasn't using the correct time control. To his credit, the organiser acknowledged this.

Alright then, so what is that tournament doing in the FIDE list for October?
