The latest changes to org mode have overwritten several of my and

Also, the org.texi license was reverted to FDL 1.2.

Hmm maybe there should be a standard text that gets sent out to new
committers, which includes things like "never, ever, simply upload the
newest version of your local sources; always merge."...

My skills in version control my not be sufficient to do this, jumping
between different version control worlds.
So I work by applying changed in Emacs to my local copy and reserve the
right to undo changes made in Emacs (not that this has been necessary
recently).  Usually this works OK, occasionally, like yesterday,
I miss something.

Despite the FSF holding the copyright for these files, the "master"
version is still the one in my own repository.

For me the biggest improvement would be to get an email copy
of all changes to files where I am the maintainer, not buried
in the general commits digest (where I do overlook things),
but a personalized one. I am sure that such emails could be
generated automatically, but I don't know how.
