Jay, there's been a mix-up in who's saying what here. I *very much*
want to know what commits are being bought over. For slightly
different reasons (I'm mostly wanting them for easy review, you for
bug fixing). Brant is suggesting that just the last commit ID is
enough, which I disagree with (and will continue to hit -1/-2 for).

If somebody was to improve the import script to do this automatically
that would be great. Currently I can't see an easy way of
programatically telling when the last import was - I'll take another
look at the problem if somebody smarter than me doesn't sort it first

Thanks for clarifying!  I was quite confused as I thought you were in
favor of the details in the commit messages.  Sorry for confusing who was 
carrying what stance forward.


I agree with Duncan.  I think that having details of the commits that
are being pulled in with a sync commit is important.  I realize that the
user probably isn't going to do a perfect job, but it certainly helps 
to give context to the changes being made and provides important bread 
for debug.

It would be great if we could get the process for this automated.  In the 
mean time, those of us doing the syncs will just have to slog through the
