Hey Daniel--

I think that what I wrote is grammatically correct, in that "4 February
2005" modifies "OpenBSD snapshot".  I don't have any objections if you
want to change it, although in your text you should probably do s/in
OpenBSD snapshot/in an OpenBSD snapshot/.  Also I personally don't write
dates as "February 4th 2005" but I'm probably not the right person to
wave the consistency banner either.  :-)

I'll think about it some more when I'm next in the file (if you haven't
already changed it, that is).  (This text now exists on HEAD, RELENG_6,
and RELENG_5.)
