While it would be nice to cover -current also, I think just cvs-src is
fine.  -current gets a very large amount of emails, so if -current is
included in the summarary I think there is the risk that the report puts
too large a workload on the author.

I think it was fine, it covered the important points without going into
uneeded details.

I read the source commit mails, and I can't remember any important
subjects which has been missed.

I think that was very successful.  Especially the 'Filenames and line
numbers added to panic output' debate got a bit heated, and I think you
described it very impartial (and only the important points).

Nice work! (especially doing it and not just talking about doing it :-) ).
