Let me see if I understand this correctly.  Most devs and some users 
wants things put in the changelog.  I don't know if it was you before 
but in the past someone didn't want to put when versions are removed.  
That person, whoever it was, said they were not going to do it because 
it was silly or whatever.  This was taken to the council and it was 
decided that all changes had to be put in the changelog.  Now in this 
thread, about the same thing from my understanding.  You said "waste of 
time" and the policy is not "sane".

So, council says it has to be done.  You say you won't.  Tell me where I 
missed the point here.

Thanks for the reply but I think this is going to be headed back up the 
food chain again.  It appears that either rules mean nothing or they 
have to be enforced on everyone.  The rule makers need to decide this.  
I suspect the reason this thread has gotten quiet is because it has 
already been discussed off this list about what is coming next.  Just me 
reading tea leaves here.

My advice, follow the rules or get the rules changed.  Don't break them 
tho.  It doesn't matter to me if you take that advice or not.  Just saying.
