I would like to discuss here one aspect of our changelog policy.
What about this policy: "Backward incompatible changes should be mentioned in the RPM changelog."
This eliminates the problem with 30 equaly important bugfixes and gives clear direction what to look for, even if it is not enough emphasized by upstream.
Yeah. But I wonder how changes can be incompatible in another direction than backward. Just the wording, but it puzzled me.
For example an application can't parse config file writtet by newer version of that application. It is not that interesting for us and documenting it would be a lot of effort for the maintainer because it is often not mentioned anywhere.
