Sounds good.  Thanks for the explanation.

One change in gnus-faq.texi needs to be synced from v5-10 to
emacs/man: revision (Gnus CVS) is missing.  I think this
corresponds to address@hidden/gnus--rel--5.10--patch-46.

BTW, a disadvantage of the arch syncing is that e.g. in the cvs log of
texi/gnus-faq.texi we get the following:

| revision 7.5
| date: 2004/10/13 01:27:08;  author: miles;  state: Exp;  lines: +7 -4
| Revision: address@hidden/gnus--devo--0--patch-145
| Merge from gnus--rel--5.10
| Patches applied:
|  * address@hidden/gnus--rel--5.10--patch-46
|    Update from CVS

The original commit had the following log message:

| revision
| date: 2004/10/12 15:54:46;  author: rsteib;  state: Exp;  lines: +7 -4
| ([5.9]): Improve code for reply-in-news.

In [1], there is no indication what this changes is about.  People
need to find and read the ChangeLog entry to find out what has been
changed.  It would be nice if the original log message could be

Bye, Reiner.
