Re: Heads up: users of the netbsd-8 branch

from Martin Husemann:

Does this also apply to NetBSD-current?

When did the changes happen?  My last update on i386 was Aug 30 (but amd64 was last updated Jun 20):

-rw-r--r--    1 root  wheel  113007028 Aug 30 13:57 buildworld-i386.log
-rw-r--r--    1 root  wheel       5542 Aug 30 20:12 installworld-i386.log
-rw-r--r--    1 root  wheel       5629 Aug 30 20:44 installworld.log2

Where, in what file in src tree, would this change be noted?  My first thought would be doc/CHANGES .
