I have no issue with the current text.

If you believe that it is unclear that there is a difference between an
occasional contributor (who most likely would not read -devel nor
-cvslog) and a committer (who is supposed to read -cvslog), then
maybe a patch is useful.

I believe the difference could be considered common sense.
