I filed a bug report last Friday.

See: https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1044777
Is it really necessary that the user access change logs dating back to 2009
from Yast? It wasn't designed to read giant changelogs.
It's just slowing down the system. Can the changelogs be compressed each year
for easier access? If someone really wants to read
the entire changelogs, can we not put them elsewhere?

Most text editors freeze up accessing such files. As for Yast2, why not keep
the changelogs for the last 3 or 4 kernel releases?
The tabs used in Yast2 are there for a quick access to info for a package.
