	Heh ;-) we get to add each committer to the commiters list manually -
that is something I ought to do I guess, but Thorsten tends to do idly
when the bounces happen.

	No problem cancelling it, we can read the git log -u much more easily
these days.

	Clearly running indent gratuitously on the code, while it may improve
it, makes the diff very hard to read ;-) beyond that - code cleanup,
porting, easy hacks - anything non-controversial should go straight into
master. Anything you're not sure - just ask on the list :-)

	If you're hacking a module substantially, it makes sense to dung out
un-necessary cruft, vertical line wasteage, over-verbose comments that
reduce readability are all fair game I think.

	Excited to see what you'll work on :-)

	All the best,
