Just to give my own opinion:
For normal -CURRENT user who haven't a real in-depth knowledge of the
system, is not easy to understand what every single commit message
means, especially those in regard to difficul topics such as VM
development or network device drivers development. That's probably why
nobody has volunteered to write a Status Report. It (the Status Report)
should be a work both of users _and_ developers. 
These are my 0.2 euro
