I appreciate the concentrated development on Org Mode, but couldn't the
subject lines of posts be reversed, or truncated to `v 6.xx' and subject
first?  Pardon me for being so limited, but it's a lot of news and the
lines are hard to scan.

Hi Sean,

I am not sure I understand.

    Hi Sean,

A dumb complaint, the subject line of the Org Mode list are so often too
long.

I think he's using a mail reader with a short header margin, and wants
the significant words up front.

I try to front-load subject headers for that reason.

For example, I suggest that this subject line: 

  "Org-mode version 6.30trans (release_6.30d.869.g4cb3); Footnotes not
  working in figure caption"

becomes:

  "Footnotes not working in figure caption -- 6.30trans (release_6.30d.869.g4cb3)"

Carsten, shall I change to this?

Hi Bastien, yes, this would be much better.  Please go ahead.
