Looking at https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/488903
whether there is actually any value in having each and every git
commit mentioned in the .changes files?
Would it make sense to e.g. only list the range of commits that was
added, plus any bug, fate, cve etc entries fixed in that range?
Well, I understand your surprise, but it's really the result of our
own changes. SLE/Leap kernel takes our patches, thus each of these
changes should be recorded. Actually, the upstream stable change is a
single, relatively small changelog entry. All the rest are about our
own backports and fixes. These own changes are just so big.
Of course, if you have a better idea to shorten the
log, please let us
One thing that we can and should do in Tumbleweed is to cut off old
changelog entries. Right now, we are preserving the rpm changelog from
2008 (kernel 2.6.24). I hope this is doable with the checkin scripts.
