Re: Logging granularity

Sorry for my imprecise language, but cmpilato has it right. I believe it is valuable to have per-commit-item logs in _addition_ to per-commit logs. The per-commit log should describe the overall functional changes of the commit, while the per-commit-item logs can describe the changes made to the individual item to achieve the functional changes described in the per-commit log.

Currently I find myself using the per-commit log to describe both functional changes and file changes. I would be surprised if I am the only one finding this limitation frustrating.

So, any answers to my original question? :-)

The request here is for commit log messages that are per-commit-item,
instead of (or perhaps, in addition to) per-revision.
