Hello Twisted developers,

Please take a few minutes to refresh your memory of the contents of 

In particular, I'd like to draw everyone's attention to the requirements 
for news fragments.  Since we introduced this part of the workflow, the 
review requirements for these has been a little unclear.  Many reviewers 
haven't required that the news fragment be reviewed (that is, if it was 
missing, they would say "Please add a news fragment and then merge.") or 
haven't kept the guidelines these files in mind when reviewing them.

I'd like for this to change.  Informative, consistently written news 
fragments result better information being available to users when we do 
a release.  This is a very simple part the development process but 
effort here has a disproportionately large effect on the perception of 

If the guidelines for news fragment content on the review process wiki 
page are unclear or insufficient, please complain and we can work on 
improving the weaknesses.

Thanks, and congratulations to everyone on the (now inevitable :) 10.1
