Huh ?

I suppose this get also written out to the file ?

We do not want this. This would mean we loose informations in the changes
files.


If the OBS storage only worked a little more like git, you would not
have to do things like these. Or, as the public puts it, authorship and
change information does not belong into tracked files, but into the
history log.

I don't deny software projects their occassional user-level
changelog.txt which has all irrelevant developer actions removed, but
OBS is pretty much for developers anyway. And right now, .changes looks
like a drop-in to counter for the suboptimal history tracking OBS has.
