I think the CVS could help: with every commit, there is a log message
telling the purpose of the commit.
It is just hard to send such descriptions in such bulk patches as David was
creating - they contain most of what has been written on vger since January
or whenever last full merge happened.
If you were in the CVS, you could decide on a daily basis which commits
should go out, which should be rewritten and which are just fine...
