That's true... I think I even wrote a small personal "replace_in_files" script 
for that at some time (so I wouldn't have to remember and type the 
intermediate commands). So I take it back: As long as the change just means, 
we'll have to replace a certain string in many files, even many links are easy 
to fix.

I'll try to keep them mostly offlist.

I fear that that list would just be quite dead soon - and once we'd need it 
again, we'd have forgotten about it... just taking the part of the discussion 
offlist is much easier. 

And adding another list will make the Hurd lists less accessible.

I just did that. It felt a bit strange to skip a month, but I assume it's the 
best way to treat it here.

argl... I just replaced it with the moved news - directly in master.

My reason for using the last day was mainly that it can strengthen the pretext 
that the month is always a look _back_ which shows what we did. 

I'm not really sure about that, though. 

By the way: Do we already have documentation about nsmux on the website?
