I would suggest that real soon someone updates the editor's guide. I
for one have stayed out of CVS all this time to help with commits
because I don't want to screw anything up! If we make a commit to a
branch, aren't we also supposed to send it to HEAD? I may be wrong, so
having a formally written procedure for editors to follow is real
important now that stuff has changed.
