I Located a copy of it (in my private archive of the CVS mailing list) at the
stage it was at 6-27-2000, but can only find a copy of it currently online in
google's cache (might want to grab it quick).

perhaps some google mining would turn up more, but unfortunately it was the
message after that where he started just indicating the kinds of changes and
that updates were 
"on";, so even my
private archive does not contain more.

".trunk" patch update 6-27-2000"

good luck
