Not exactly, but maybe it is closest to.

Indeed lots of useful info.

What I am more looking for, is sometimes the hints related to (some of) 
the vast amount of code clean-ups/improvements, that possibly have 
influence on area A or B. (In the commit-logs for master)

Maybe maybe it is possible for the involved devs, when they think it is 
possibly relevant, to add a few words to the description so that it is 
indeed able to read that in de summaries.

On the other hand, being honest, in general I only have/make little time 
to look at those...

It does. Thanks for the hint.

So in summary, my request is best picked up if devs, when they think it 
is relevant, to add a few words to the description of the patch, 
indicating which user actions might be involved/affected.

Sounds reasonable?
