"Re:" has nothing to do with threading, which normally works based on
Message-Id/In-Reply-To/References headers (this is what blists uses, and
I think Gmane does as well).  So you may completely change the Subject,
but as long as you use your MUA's "reply" feature, you add to the same
thread.  Some mailing list archives do substring match on Subjects,
though - I think MARC does.  But adding "Re:" doesn't help them either.

Please continue to post daily reports.  Start the message Subjects with
"cluts: " and follow that with either the report's date (e.g., "07/13")
or specific info on changes made (e.g., "such-and-such tests").

And please continue to post weekly reports as well - on Mondays.  These
should summarize your accomplishments for last week and describe what
you intend to work on next.  I feel that the daily communication, while
very helpful, is no replacement for weekly summaries.
