... and I was taught that including the complete commit message is a
waste of space since it already exists in HEAD, and therefore to
summarize the changes briefly rather than reporting them verbatim. A
philosophy with which I agree. :)  There were only 2 changes merged,
going back and looking at the logs for them could not have been that
much of a burden.

That said, for RELENG_8 commits during the freeze re@ did ask in one
of their many messages about commit approvals to paste the complete
commit message in the MFC. So, bad Alfred, no cookie. :)
