--- Begin Message ---Package: josm Version: 0.0.svn5047+dfsg1-1 Severity: normal Dear Maintainer, JOSM has only a changelog.Debian.gz which gives just a brief mention that it got a new tested snapshot. See for instance :- /usr/share/doc/josm$ zcat changelog.Debian.gz | less josm (0.0.svn5047+dfsg1-1) unstable; urgency=low * New tested snapshot * Fix wrapper script to detect newer versions of OpenJDK (Closes: #661942) * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3, no changes needed -- David Paleino <da...@debian.org> Thu, 22 Mar 2012 18:05:23 +0100 But there is no way for a person to know what got changed/added/deleted whatever in the new snapshot. It would be nice to have a changelog.gz which tells the changes between the two versions similar to say for e.g. like leafpad does :- /usr/share/doc/leafpad$ ls changelog.Debian.gz changelog.gz copyright README As can be seen there is a changelog.Debian.gz which tells/shares about the packaging diffs that were made for each release as well as a changelog file which tells/shares what got changed or added to the newest release in leafpad. It would be nice if we can have that.I know I could put it as wishlist but this IMHO is really needed to know what the changes are. -- System Information: Debian Release: wheezy/sid APT prefers unstable APT policy: (500, 'unstable'), (500, 'testing'), (500, 'stable'), (1, 'experimental') Architecture: amd64 (x86_64) Kernel: Linux 3.2.0-2-amd64 (SMP w/2 CPU cores) Locale: LANG=en_IN, LC_CTYPE=en_IN (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash Versions of packages josm depends on: ii ant 1.8.2-4 ii libcommons-codec-java 1.5-1 ii libgettext-commons-java 0.9.6-2 ii libmetadata-extractor-java 2.3.1+dfsg-2 ii liboauth-signpost-java 22.214.171.124-1 ii libsvgsalamander-java 0~svn95-1 ii openjdk-6-jre 6b24-1.11.1-3 ii openjdk-7-jre 7~u3-2.1-3 ii openstreetmap-map-icons-classic 1:0.0.svn27763-1 Versions of packages josm recommends: ii josm-plugins <none> ii webkit-image-gtk 0.0.svn25399-2+b1 josm suggests no packages. -- no debconf information -- Regards, Shirish Agarwal शिरीष अग्रवाल My quotes in this email licensed under CC 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/ http://flossexperiences.wordpress.com 065C 6D79 A68C E7EA 52B3 8D70 950D 53FB 729A 8B17

Unfortunately there's no "wontfix" in Debian.

Unfortunately, upstream doesn't provide a human-friendly changelog. I could generate a svn log, but it would be rather unuseful. Instead, what upstream does (and that suffices, to me -- if it doesn't for you, you should file a bug to http://josm.openstreetmap.de/ ), is to put relevant news in the "JOSM startup page". There you see major differences introduced, with the corresponding SVN revision. Kindly, David -- . ''`.
