PS. FWIW, my guidelines are to trim as much as possible. I include the

include enough context so that somebody reading just that piece of mail
can make (at least some) sense of the questions and the answers. And I
delete any part that I'm not directly commenting on.

I agree with most of what Nick said. However, it's nice if you find a thread on something like gmane that you can get all the information in one message, so you don't have to hunt up and down the thread. So I like to see:

* Original problem
** Quoted stuff showing whats been suggested and if it failed the reasons.
** Final solution and other suggestions

In summary I would just like to look at the last message in a thread to gather all the relevant information.
