I went looking, and found that the XFree86 changelog is actually 
trimmed to the last 3-4 changelog entries, so that is good at 
least.  ;o)

Another suggestion for improvement in the emails is that it would 
be nice if there was a summary listing just the package names 
that have been updated were at the top of the mail.

ie:

New packages updated:
---------------------

foo-1.2-3
bar-2.3-4
baz-4.5-6
XFree86-4.3.0-42


Individual package changelog highlights:
----------------------------------------

foo-1.2-3
* Sun Oct 12 2003 ........
- foo updated to fix bug blah

####################################################

bar-2.3-4
* Sun Oct 12 2003 ........
- bar updated to fix bug blah

####################################################

baz-4.5-6
* Sun Oct 12 2003 ........
- baz updated to fix bug blah

####################################################

XFree86-4.3.0-42
* Sun Oct 12 2003 ........
- Complete support for all video hardware ever manufactureed, 
  including full support for all features of that hardware has
  now been implemented, and all bugs in all drivers and in the
  X server itself, and all libraries have now been fixed.



Looks much nicer now doesn't it?  ;o)
