CVS' activity bulletin - Issue 001

Hi all,

Please find hereafter the second issue of the weekly CVS activity news bulletin.

This second bulletin is dedicated to "Gaston" as a reference to the
beautiful "gaffe"[0] I made earlier this week[1]. Unfortunately, there
will be no detailed description of netpgp(1), even if its development
has been active this week [thanks to Alistair].

Less talk, more action... let's see what happened this week:

Doran, originally from Matthias Drochner]

 * PR#41401 - Go through the hypervisor to update the GDT, directly
