That's why I tend to spend the time to briefly summarize what the
version bump actually improves for users by upstream (see my gstreamer
bumps for example). I spend the time once, thousands of users get the
information handily with emerge --changelog and the like, without
digging into /usr/share/doc/*/NEWS* _after_ upgrading and already having
had to do the work to decide if its important upgrade for them or not
(in case of conservative upgrading).
