That means that for the importing the v5_10 branch done by Andreas
Schwab (installed on 2004-07-22), we will have to add Gnus'
lisp/ChangeLog in lisp/gnus/ChangeLog.  And there, all dates should be
replaced with 2004-07-22.  Note that the changes from Gnus 5.9 to 5.10
(from the year 2000 upto 2004-07-22) span more than two thousand

Bye, Reiner.
