They were mostly pulled together, because they are both concerned with ease of 
running hurd, and because I wanted to keep the news easy to take in (too many 
paragraphs make it harder to read).

Why didn’t I find that phrase?! :)
And it’s so simple…

I ran out of “space”[^1], so I had to try and find the most interesting parts 
for readers.
