Root/ChangeLog

1This file is no longer used. Monotone developers' convention is
2now to write ChangeLog-format log messages in the commit logs
3only.

5Many people were duplicating the same text in both places, and
6this caused unnecessary merge conflicts for ordering of the
7serialised ChangeLog file for the non-serialised ancestry graph.

9"mtn log" will produce the same information, sorted in proper
10ancestry order, even with the presence of propagates and putbacks
11of long-running development branches. A copy of this output will
12overwrite this file for release tarballs.

14When writing commit log messages in ChangeLog format, you can omit
15the date and name header, because these will be carried in the
16author and date certs. Just use the body part, like so:
17
18
19* foo.cc (function): change this to foo more efficiently
20* cmd_bar.cc: use the more efficient foo
21* NEWS: tell the users that the bar command is now so much faster.
