What happens if someone doesn't read the mailing lists?  Someone running
HEAD should be, of course, but anything that affects non-HEAD users should
be written down someplace else more permanent.

The scenario I want to avoid is having someone upgrade a non-bleeding-edge
system after 6 months, and have something crop up that was only discussed
on a mailing list 3 months previously when the change hit HEAD.

That's a large part of the reason I put together the DragonFly BSD Log; so
people don't have to read mailing lists religiously to see what's going
on.  CVS logs should be the avenue of last resort for most people.
