The means of changelog generation needs to be driven by Council, since they are the ones that are demanding changelogs for every tiny change. I proposed shortlog as something that is simple and works for now. Regardless of generated changelogs or them being manually written, the only way that we can ensure that changelogs don't contain any reordering is by either hand-merging them (then we might as well hand-write them), or taking snapshots of shortlog changelogs (which can lead to dupes after some 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
