  Unfortunately, the Subversion history isn't included -- although the
public Subversion repository still exists, and I have actually gone to
it once or twice to track down a commit.  (I certainly will preserve
history in the future, but I didn't in the svn -> darcs switch)

  I don't know what the initial question is -- Christian Cced me a
message about adding you as a committer but no details about your
original email.  I skimmed over the help file, and the usage of full stops
looks consistent to me, but I'm presumably missing something.  What was
it that you wanted to change?
