I personally would rather see the topic change in the email when the
topic changes, than keep a topic, such as fedora 9, when the email has
nothing to do with the content of the email... Its called a subject
line for a reason... Because it contains the SUBJECT if the message.
Now I this is some type of official rule, perhaps the el presidente
should send it out.
