Would a better subject line, fitting in the smaller default width, have
been something like:

PostgreSQL 7.3 Released! by the PostgreSQL Global Development Group

So hopefully it would look something like:

17096 Nov 28 PostgreSQL Public   (6733) [GENERAL] PostgreSQL 7.3
Released! b

Am thinking that regardless of the wording of the release, it doesn't
hurt us to do simple things like re-arranging the Subject line to make
things a bit more obvious.


Regards and best wishes,
