First, consistency : evolution/e-d-s are almost the only modules on GNOME using "micro" message for SVN commit. And it isn't even consistent across evolution maintainers ;) Second, being self-contained (and therefore, ease of use for external maintainers / lurkers / packagers / release-team). You are only thinking of svn log when using viewcvs. But if you are, just like me, subscribed to svn-commit mailing list, it is really much easier to see directly what it a commit purpose (fix a typo, a bug, etc) without having to rely on another tool / website. Same apply when using svn log command directly. It is the same reason why we ask people, when requesting freeze break, to attach patch to mail and not just a link to bugzilla :) (Just to be clear, this suggestion is not done with my release-team hat :) -- Frederic Crozat <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Mandriva _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionfirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
