  Seconded.  I believe that a good summary of changes for the actualy
pkgsrc commit is quite useful.  It helps people determine whether the
changes are significant enough to "cvs update" their pkgsrc.

  I don't think this should be repeated in the pkg-CHANGES commit
(specifically, since the commit message in this case doesn't actually
apply to the changes to pkg-CHANGES).
