Not necessarily.  If I were you, I'd be starting a new thread with each
daily report.  Then possible comments on your daily report, such as from
Rich, would be in the thread with that daily report.  But the next daily
report will start a new thread and have its comments, if any, in that
new thread.  Otherwise, you have a thread that spans multiple months and
multiple topics around cluts, with the only thing in common being that
it is about daily reports for cluts.

Another thing you could improve is always mention cluts in the Subject
of your daily reports because this mailing list is not limited to cluts -
in fact, it is primarily about musl rather than cluts.  Something like
"cluts report for 8/10 - implemented this and that" (with 8/10 being
today's date) will work better.
