CVS and SVN have global order, hence their ability to create changelogs that are always growing in a single direction. Git has no global order when merges are involved. If I merge in a commit made months ago, where is the correct place for it in the generated changelog? When the generated changelog is generated from scratch, where does it go? Does it stay in the same place after more merges? -- Robin Hugh Johnson Gentoo Linux: Developer, Trustee & Infrastructure Lead E-Mail : robbat2@g.o GnuPG FP : 11AC BA4F 4778 E3F6 E4ED F38E B27B 944E 3488 4E85
