as always I do appreciate your summaries. This new format, with the
boilerplate at the end certainly is an improvement. However, I always
use your news announcement as a trigger to read the version at
<http://www.python.org/dev/summary/<dates>.html>. I used to do this by
clicking on the "archive" link at the beginning of your message and then
clicking on the latest summary. For my type of reading I would strongly
prefer to have the link to the actual version at the top of the message,
rather than at the end.
I hope you keep summarizing as long as no other volunteer takes over.
