Well, I thought we had discussed this previously on list. The paths
were added for the convenience of reviewing parties. Opening up every
mail to see what it applies to is annoying. Maybe for big changes we
should have a special case (break it of, or just put in "big change" :).

Adding the author seems redundant to me. It is already in the From:
part of the mail.
