Oh dear, sorry about that.  Is it possible to fix that without reverting
and recommitting?  I did this via VC, and thought the commit message
would include the string "calendar/todo-mode.el", since it is in the
ChangeLog entry copied into the commit log buffer, but I see it is not
in the log listing.  But I notice that other log entries do have such a
string; were they explicitly added to the Subject: line in the commit
log buffer, or is that because the Subject: line was left blank so just
the first line of the ChangeLog entry was used?  If so, is that
acceptable practice, or should the Subject: line always be filled in?
