Hrmm. If you're going to have nonstandard requests, it would be handy
if these somehow would be handled automagically. How dead is CVS
development, maybe they would take a patch?
Deader than roadkill, IMO. I think they are in permanennt bugfix only
mode (except for new features developed "in house" by the maintainers
That's why I am investigating transitioning us to a cygwin port of cvsnt
(no, it's not just for native windows anymore...)
The thing about the ChangeLog stuff, is that it really isn't that
non-standard. MOST projects dislike *patches* to ChangeLog files, and
request that ChangeLog entries be sent in cut-n-paste form. This is
because a patch to ChangeLog *never* (okay, ALMOST never) applies
cleanly, since it is extremely likely that your patch will be queued up
behind others, which ALSO affect the ChangeLog at exactly the same spot
yours does: the top.
I tend NOT to modify the ChangeLog at all -- I put my ChangeLog entries
in a separate file, and paste that into the email by hand...
