This is actually what the guideline says you
should be doing when using
upstream's changelog: strip irrelevant things (Windows installer fixes?
MacOSX build fix, non-openSUSE releated feature fixes).
And sometimes you're lucky to maintain a package like coreutils that has a
ChangeLog and NEWS that I often whish all other packages to have as every
addition, change in behaviour or bug fix is mentioned and in case of bugs
it's mentioned which release introduced that bug.
But I admit that it *is* sometimes hard to determine the importance of an
entry. My rule of thumb is if it's relevant for a user of the package, not
for someone that either wants to build his own packages or even change the
Consider this: For all packages which do not have such a nice file, we
now suggest "I as a packager dont feel like doing the work, to compile
the list of important changes, instead i expect that every of other
contributors/users in the project goes through the hassle"
Seems much more reasonable no? One person doing the work vs dozens or
hundred of people having to do it over and over.
