I don't think very many people use the registry, or at least, they
aren't using it intentionally to store their own information.

I don't think so, bug fixes don't usually get a NEWS entry. But I can
say something on the gnus.general list.

Also, I really like the idea of using the registry to attach notes to
mails -- that's something I've intended for Gnorb for a while. If you'd
like to contribute that to Gnorb I'd be very happy to accept it, or
maybe it's something that could even go into the registry proper. Of
course, if you'd prefer to keep it a separate package that's fine too --
I'd install it!

Thanks,
Eric
