Thanks, that's a good idea. I've done it into the in-progress CHANGES
file at http://svn.red-bean.com/repos/manyhands/trunk/changes-1.5/CHANGES.

+1 (Anything else you can think of?)

This would go in the release notes; post here a patch to
https://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/www/svn_1.5_releasenotes.html and
we'll make sure it gets incorporated.

For some of these things we'll also do a line in the CHANGES file, but
just getting it into the release notes will do for now, since the two
will be compared to each other before the release.

Best,
-Karl
