Then let's focus the review on quality of the software and legal issues
and not on formalism like listing patch files in the changelog.

Formalism like listing patches is something which makes automated
review of quality and legal issues significantly more practable.
Without formal tracking of patches, there can easily be changes that
invalidate such quality or legal reviews.

This could be implemented as a forced local source service,
that is, the same tech that adds
# Copyright (c) 2019 SUSE LINUX GmbH, Nuernberg, Germany.
to every spec file that is lacking it.
That local source service should be able to tell what files have been
added and which are deleted, and augment .changes by an autogenerated
entry that contains the desired line "Added xx.diff", "Removed
xx.diff".


Unfortunately as I stated somewhere else, at the moment in terms of
security / bug fixes this isn't complete enough, there needs to be a
mapping from patch name to bug number in the .changes file and this is
somewhat harder to automate.

Hmm.. how it can be different? This is about *.changes, not about
patchinfo. I don't understand why the automatic tracking of patch
files can be worse.

It really sounds as if you mandate the submission of a hand-written
tax declaration at each time -- even if the whole transactions have
been tracked online -- just because the tax officer prefers reading
the printed papers :)


thanks,

Takashi
