[Evolution-hackers] Don't forget to write ChangeLog entries!

2005-12-31 Thread Tor Lillqvist
Hey, it's very irritating to do a cvs update and notice stuff like:

cvs server: Updating libwombat
cvs server: Updating macros
cvs server: Updating mail
P mail/em-folder-properties.c
P mail/evolution-mail.schemas.in.in
P mail/mail-session.c
P mail/mail.error.xml
cvs server: Updating mail/default
cvs server: Updating mail/default/C
cvs server: Updating mail/default/de

Notice: no update to mail/ChangeLog. You get the feeling somebody is
trying to sneak in something without telling... Sure, it's trivial to
run cvs log and/or cvs diff on the changed files (I didn't do that yet)
(and that of course is the only way to *really* find out what's changed
by who and when, ChangeLog entries can and should be just summaries).
But still, please try to write also a ChangeLog entry for each change,
no matter how trivial or cosmetic.

All this IMHO, of course.

seems like this is my fault. i don't know what led me to this (perhaps
guenther had put some real beer into those bottles with non-alcoholic
labels when we both met? ;-) ), but i somehow stupidly assumed that my
commit comments would be merged to the corresponding ChangeLog files.

however, i'm going to add my missing ChangeLogs entries after grepping
for my commits, big thank you for pointing me on this.

 All this IMHO, of course.

i do share your opinion.

thanks,
andre
