Thanks.  IMO, changes of this nature should be disallowed.
Expecting people to find an email in the freebsd-git
mailing archives seems to be a bit unfriendly (especially
since the mailing list archives are currently a mess).  

The information in that email should be in /usr/src/UPDATING.
Yes, there is a catch-22 in that one may not be able to 
update /usr/src to read /usr/src/UPDATING.  Fortunately, one
can use https://cgit.freebsd.org/src/tree/UPDATING to read
the file.
