I'll try to keep in mind this gentlemen example of "expressing a point of view on
anybody else work" next time, so i'll not misunderstend it with an offense.

I do not understand that: could you rephrase?

It is as much mature as all the argument you people brought to this
discussione, from my point of view. If you asked that question yourself,
you're probably going to understand my point.

Speaking about entry like "New upstream closes #...", my position is:

This kind of request is futile, redundant and of no real need in _any_ case.
Hunting maintainers down for a log entry of that kind is a waste of time
either for the maintainer and for the hunters. All the arguments brought to
this discussion to confute my observation are so childish and contraddictory,
that the only way i have to demonstrate it is to act as previously stated.
