Oh god, that's like saying you want to generate the NEWS file from
the git commit log.

I meant nothing less than:
rpm -q --changelog kernel-desktop

That kind of thing only makes sense. This is actually a changelog.

That's not really true.

That only makes sense when the git/svn/vcs log indeed contains
descriptive entries.

OBS-web recently took out the text box that allowed you to comment on
web-based edits, so you have lots of empty comments when changes are
made through the web-ui. That kills your idea pretty much, but even if
that text box was reinstated (which I'd recommend), it still has many
drawbacks. For one, it depends on user discipline, for two, once you
make a mistake on the VCS log, you can't undo it. Mistakes happen, so
that's not really good.

On the other hand, OBS vcs changelogs also contain SR descriptions
when SRs are accepted. That would in fact make for a good changelog.
