I see an overwhelming amount of posts on the new list which where
somehow missed on -dev, though.

As a general note that you might not know, from Germany at least
and over my internet account and being not a logged in user i find
that github very often fails to generate commit data or cuts
directory listings.  At least there are no advertisings which
consume multiple CPUs for who-knows-what.

Oh, -dev was a terribly noisy list.  So: ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(turn and face the strange).

Congratulations for the price you have won.  Especially so in
respect to, brave new world!, having to go over browser based
issue tracker interfaces.  I could not do that.
